REPORT 

OF THE 

Depaetment of Public Welfake 



Part I 



GrENEEAL WOEK OF THE DEPAETMENT 



REPORT OF THE COMMISSIONER OF PUBLIC WELFARE. 



To the Honorable Senate and House of Representatives. 

The Second Annual Report of the Department of Public 
Welfare, covering the year from December 1, 1920, to Novem- 
ber 30, 1921, is herewith respectfully presented. 

Over 80,000 persons have come under the supervision or 
direct care of the Department during the year. From the 
abandoned babies and neglected children to the helpless and 
destitute old men and women, each case involves a critical 
situation iu a human life. 

The Department has charge of all the neglected, all the de- 
linquent, and all the dependent persons over whom the Com- 
monwealth takes supervision, except those persons for whose 
care the State has been able to set up specialized departments, 
such as the Department of Mental Diseases, the Division of 
the Blind, or the Department of Correction. By the removal of 
the larger special problems to those specialized departments the 
Department of. Public Welfare has been left better able to cope 
with the 80,000 persons who have come under its supervision 
during the year. These cases are summarized as follows — 

1. In the State Infinnaiyi the Massachusetts Hospital School, 

and the three training schools 8,239 

2. On parole from three training schools . ... . . 4,188 

3. Minor wards, principally in foster homes . . - . 7,150 

4. Infants in boarding homes supervised . . . . 2,388 

5. Individuals aided in Mothers' Aid families . . .17,821 

6. Individuals given temporary aid . . . . .26,171 

7. Individuals given sick aid . . . . . 5,824 

8. Individuals aided because of dangerous diseases . . ^ 2,257 

9. Individuals aided because of wife settlement . . 1,806 

10. Women from State Infirmary under supervision . . 245 

11. Children placed out by cities and towns and supervised . . 1,097 

12. Adults placed out by cities and towns and super%dsed . 219 

13. Inmates of almshouses supervised . . . . . . 3,854

supervision. 



4 DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC WELFARE. [P. D. 17. 

The Department is organized into three divisions, the Divi- 
sions of Aid and Relief, Child Guardianship, and Juvenile 
Training; and two embryonic divisions, Private Charities and 
Housing and Town Planning. Each of the three main divisions 
includes an institution or institutions as an integral part of its 
w^ork. 

DIVISION OF AID AND RELIEF. 

The unemployment situation which began to be felt acutely 
in the Division of Aid and Relief in November, 1920, still con- 
tinues. It has caused an increase of 50 per cent in the amounts 
paid out for temporary aid in State cases, and the number of 
persons in the families so aided increased nearly 100 per cent, — 
from 13,313 in 1920 to 26,144 in 1921. It has caused an in- 
crease in the number of sick poor persons cared for at the State 
Infirmary, the hospital of the Division, from 4,140 in 1920 
to 5,172 in 1921. Were it not for the savings accumulated dur- 
ing the period of war industries when several members of the 
family could secure work, and were it not for the savings en- 
forced upon many families by prohibition, the unemployment 
period would probably be causing even larger expenditures for 
public and private relief than it is now causing. It has caused 
an increase in the total net cost of public poor relief in Massa- 
chusetts, including the cost to cities and towns as well as the 
cost to the State, from $6,392,712.36 for the year ending 
March 31, 1920, to $7,116,954.47 for the year ending March 
31, 1921. 

In order to reduce as much as possible the distress of unem- 
ployment, the Commissioner, early in the year, called attention 
through the press to the need of organizing local employment 
committees in cities and towns. Such committees should be 
made permanent, to deal with the seasonal unemployment 
which comes every winter and to become better and better 
prepared to deal with the more acute periods as they occur. 
By such preventive measures many people can be saved from 
becoming dependent and having their courage and their self- 
respect weakened. 

A detailed report of the work of the Division of Aid and

Relief is made by its Director, Mr. Frank W. Goodhue, on 
page 12. 

The inspection of almshouses and the statistics of poor relief 
are reported upon in detail in Part III of this volume. 



DIVISION OF CHILD GUARDIANSHIP. 

Good family care rather than institutional care for the chil- 
dren under the charge of the Division of Child Guardianship 
has long been the policy of the Department and its predeces- 
sors. Dependent children, neglected children, and even those 
delinquent children who are not in need of institutional dis- 
cipline are placed in good foster homes. Seven thousand one 
hundred fifty children have come under the care of the Division 
during the year. Of the 6,216 children who were under care on 
November 30, 1921, only 717 were in institutions. Institutional 
treatment is necessary for many feeble-minded children and for 
many sick children. Up to the present time, the State In- 
firmary has had to be used for some feeble-minded children who 
could not be accommodated at the State schools for the feeble- 
minded, and for a large number of sick children for whom the 
Division has had no other hospital. During the year con- 
siderable progress has been made toward the improvement of 
this undesirable situation. A well-equipped one hundred bed 
hospital for sick children of the Division is being constructed 
at the Massachusetts Hospital School at Canton, the institu- 
tion of this Division, and it will be ready for occupancy in 1922. 

While the Massachusetts Hospital School has heretofore 
been devoted to the care of crippled children, the trustees are 
willing to undertake also the care of non-crippled sick children, 
provided that they are not feeble-minded. This will make it 
possible for us to remove our sick minor wards from the over- 
crowded conditions at the State Infirmary and to secure for 
them more specialized treatment. 

The feeble-minded children at the State Infirmary present a 
difficult problem. No State in the Union has been able to give 
adequate care to feeble-minded children. Massachusetts is 
not behind the other States; its institutional facilities are con- 



6 DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC WELFARE. [P. D. 17. 

stantly increasing; and the legislative committee on ways and 
means, for the express purpose of providing for the children at 
the Infirmary, has authorized a large building program at the 
new State school for the feeble-minded at Belchertown. 

More adequate institutional care for those children who are 
sick or feeble-minded will be a great relief to the Division of 
Child Guardianship. 

The work of the Division is reported upon in detail by its 
Director, Mr. James E. Fee. 

DIVISION OF JUVENILE TRAINING. 

For the children committed by the courts to the three train- 
ing schools in the Division of Juvenile Training, the principle of 
good family care has been extended to a point not generally 
realized. There are placed out on parole from these schools 
three times as many children as there are in the institutions. 
Two thousand six hundred forty-six boys and 482 girls were on 
parole from the training schools, either in their own families or 
in good foster homes on November 30, 1921. Had it not been 
for the policy of parole which has been wisely insisted upon by 
the trustees of the training schools, the number of State schools 
could not have been kept at its present minimum number of 
three. The Lyman School for Boys at Westborough is for 
younger boys, the Industrial School for Boys at Shirley is for 
the older boys, and the Industrial School for Girls at Lancaster 
is for the girls. As quickly as possible the children are placed 
on parole, and the average term in an institution is less than 
one year. 

As the children who are placed out on parole from the train- 
ing schools have been tried in the community on probation at 
least once before their commitment to the schools and have 
failed, they are especially difficult to supervise, and there is re- 
quired a special staff of visitors who are trained in handling 
delinquent boys and girls. 

THE FIVE INSTITUTIONS. 

Five institutions are required for carrying on that portion of 
the work of the Department which must necessarily be insti- 
titutional. The work of each institution is an integral part of 



Part I.] REPORT OF THE COMMISSIONER. 7 

the entire work^ institutional and non-institutional, of the Divi- 
sion of the Department to which the institution belongs. 

The State Infirmary at Teivksbury is primarily the hospital 
of the Division of Aid and Relief for the State charges who are 
not admissible to any other State hospital. It is an excellent 
general hospital, with a capacity of 2,351. Its great difficulty 
is in its serious problems of classification. With the insane, the 
tubercular, the aged, with persons afflicted with every form of 
disease, and with children of all ages, in a population which this 
year at one time reached 2,492, — 141 more than the capacity 
of the institution, — as satisfactory results have been obtained 
as could be expected. A comprehensive building development 
has been planned which will allow better classification in the 
various departments. The hoped-for reduction in the number 
of children by their transfer to Canton and Belchertown will 
help to accomplish this result. Dr. John H. Nichols, super- 
intendent, gives in detail a report of the work of the institution, 
which employs 416 persons on its staff. 

The Massachusetts Hospital School at Canton has heretofore 
been entirely devoted to the care of crippled children among 
whom it has secured a notably large proportion of recoveries, 
making them self-supporting citizens when they might other- 
wise have become street beggars or inmates of almshouses. Two 
factors have contributed especially to the high percentage of 
recoveries. One factor is the type of building, — the "cottage" 
which is a unit small enough so that each child may be given 
individual attention; the other factor is the type of construc- 
tion, — the "monitor" or cupola roof, which ensures a large 
supply of fresh air and sunlight. The latter was the invention 
of the superintendent and has been widely copied. This insti- 
tution has a capacity of 302, and employs 83 persons on its 
staff. Its work is reported upon in detail by its superintendent. 
Dr. John E. Fish. 

The Three State Training Schools accommodate an average of 
about 1,000 boys and girls, — one-fourth of the actual number 
of delinquent children who are under the care of the Division 
of Juvenile Training. The two parts of this entire problem of 
delinquency, the institutional part and the non-institutional 
part, are handled efficiently in the Division of Juvenile Training 



8 DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC WELFARE. [P. D. 17. 

by the Trustees of Massachusetts Training Schools, who have 
long given careful and painstaking consideration to the in- 
dividual boys and girls and to their welfare, both at the in- 
stitutions and in the community. 

The Lyman School for Boys at Westborough is the school for 
younger boys under fifteen years of age. Its capacity is 460. 
Like the other juvenile institutions under this Department, it 
is operated on the "cottage" plan, with 11 single cottages for 
30 boys, and 2 double cottages for 60 boys, each cottage under 
the charge of a master and a matron. This makes possible a 
classification which could not be arranged in large congregate 
reformatories. The master and matron have an intimate 
knowledge of each boy and exert a family influence over him. 
Group rivalry among the cottages is stimulated. The school 
employs 105 persons and is reported upon in detail by its 
superintendent, Mr. Charles A. Keeler. 

The Industrial School for Boys at Shirley is the school for 
older boys from fifteen to twenty-one years of age. With 9 
cottages it has a capacity of 280. Established in 1909, it is the 
newest of the institutions under the Department, and has a 
commanding location on a hillside with a broad outlook. A 
considerable portion of its handsome buildings and grounds has 
been built by the labor of the older boj^s. The school employs 
67 persons, and is reported upon in detail by its superintendent, 
Mr. George P. Campbell. 

The Industrial School for Girls at Lancaster is for girls under 
seventeen years of age at the time of commitment. It has 
beautiful lawns with heavy shade trees, and the cottages, 
managed entirely by women, have been made homelike to a 
degree unusual in an institution. The school employs 70 per- 
sons, and its work is described in detail by its superintendent, 
Miss Catharine M. Campbell. 

INSTITUTIONAL SUPERVISION. 

The institutions have been built up chiefly by the genius 
and whole-hearted devotion of the superintendents, and their 
long experience amply justifies the present policy of leav- 
ing to them the actual control of their institutions. Such 
standardization of purchasing as is possible is being devel- 



Part. L] REPORT OF THE COMMISSIONER. 9 

oped. This Department acts with the Departments of Cor- 
rection and PubKc Health through monthly meetings of the 
superintendents and stewards to secure joint purchasing and 
the standardization of specifications. The supervision of farm 
production, menus, waste, construction and finances is thorough, 
but it leaves the responsibility for all these matters primarily 
upon the superintendent, who is in control of the institution 
and in the most effective position to direct its activities. 

Complete analyses of the per capita cost of each item of 
expense for the institutions will be found on page 119. The 
building of more and more institutions and the standardizing 
of them is an easy way of progress, but in Massachusetts the 
Department of Public Welfare and its predecessors have always 
tried to emphasize the entire problems rather than merely the 
institutional aspects of them, and have successfully prevented 
the too rapid growth of institutional as against non-institutional 
care. 

PRIVATE CHARITIES. 

The increase in the number of charitable corporations, the 
growth of their funds, and the development by them of pre- 
ventive measures during recent years has been of great assist- 
ance to public departments, both city and State. The Board 
of State Charities in 1866 laid down as a general principle of 
public charity that "we should avail ourselves of responsible 
societies and organizations which aim to reform, support, or 
help any class of dependents, thus lessening the direct agency 
of the State and enlarging that of the people themselves." 

As a certain degree of supervision over private charitable 
corporations is valuable, they are all required to report to the 
Department of Public Welfare annually in detail. Abstracts of 
these reports are printed in Part II of this volume. With the 
consent of the charitable corporations they may be inspected 
by this Department. Only one corporation this year has re- 
fused to give its consent, and 261 have been inspected. 

HOUSING AND TOWN PLANNING. 

Planning boards in cities and towns have increased in num- 
ber from 36 in 1920 to 47 in 1921. The town plan published 
this year by the city of Newton is a model of clearness and 



10 DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC WELFARE. [P. D. 17, 

interest. The necessity for this form of preventive work was 
recognized in 1866 by the Board of State Charities, which 
reported : " Foremost among the measures of social reform . . . 
improvement of dwellings; encouragement to ownership of 
homesteads, . . . cleanliness in every street, lane and yard that 
the public arm can reach." The efforts which the Department 
has made to stimulate the appointment of planning boards and 
to encourage their work are reported upon in detail on page 84. 

GENERAL. 

While the Commissioner is responsible for the administrative 
work of the Department, the Advisory Board of five members, 
the successor to the State Board of Charity, takes part in 
formulating and changing from time to time the policies which 
govern the work of the Department. Men and women who 
have given long study to the problems of dependency and child 
welfare bring to this service the results of their experience. The 
Advisory Board is the balance wheel of the organization. 

In addition to the duties enumerated above, the departmental 
activities include the supervision over children placed out by 
cities and towns, and over adults supported by cities and towns 
in families other than their own, the inspection of county train- 
ing schools, wayfarers' lodges, public lodging houses, lying-in 
hospitals, and boarding houses for infants; the analysis of the 
statistical returns of cities and towns in regard to persons sup- 
ported and the cost thereof; and the investigation of petitions 
for the incorporation of private charities, all important statu- 
tory duties, reported upon fully in the following pages. 

Throughout the volume there will be found a careful analysis 
of the expense to the taxpayer. With the decrease in wholesale 
prices which is now taking place, there is in progress a sub- 
stantial reduction in the cost of conducting the institutions 
under the Department. When the decrease in retail prices has 
progressed far enough to affect substantially the ordinary cost 
of living, there will be further marked reductions in the cost of 
relief. The work that is being done to-day is much more effec- 
tive than the work which was being done ten years ago, because 
^he methods have improved with experience, and because all 
the forces of the community have developed in their ability to 



Part I.] REPORT OF THE COMMISSIONER. 11 

accomplish preventive work. The reclamation of human lives 
is so fundamental that it is not the point at which to begin 
to cut governmental expenditures. Each undertaking of this 
Department is made necessary by some physical, mental or 
moral weakness of the human beings who are under reclama- 
tion. The greatest economies will come through the prevention 
of such weaknesses, and through all forms of constructive work 
which build up the physical, mental or moral strength of the 
people.

Subdivision of Settlements. 

Edward F. Morgan, Chief. 

The duties of this subdivision include the investigation of the 
legal settlement status of all persons officially called to the 
attention of the division by overseers of the poor and boards of 
health, as well as of patients admitted to the State Infirmary, 
State Farm (almshouse department), State sanatoria and the 
Massachusetts Hospital School; supervision of public relief 
in the homes and in the public and private hospitals, rendered 
by cities and towns to persons without legal settlement; the 
discharge of male inmates of the State Infirmary and State 
Farm (almshouse department); and the visitation of city and 
town poor supported in families. 

The following table is a summary of the work done during 
the year in the examination and investigation of settlements of 
inmates of the State institutions : —

Supervision of Wayfarers' Lodges and Public Lodging 

Houses. 

Under the provisions of General Laws, chapter 121, sections 
7, 20 and 21, the Department annually inspects wayfarers' 
lodges and public lodging houses where the charge is 25 cents 
per night or less, and where ten or more beds are provided. 

This gives the Department supervision over commercial as 
well as charitable lodging houses. Many lodging houses of 
both classes have in the last few years raised their minimum 
prices to 35 cents, so that the Department no longer has super- 
vision over them. 

It is interesting to note that the falling off in patronage at 
the commerical lodging houses which was mentioned in the last 
annual report still continues in spite of the business depression 
and the widespread unemployment. It is probable that since 
prohibition fewer men of the class who use these lodging houses 
have come to Boston from outside cities and States. A number 
of the commercial lodging houses in Boston have been closed, 
and all have curtailed their accommodations materially. The 
minimum price in these houses still stands at 20 cents, and when 
laundry charges, rent, fuel and attendance are considered, this 
seems to be the lowest price at which even a small margin of 
profit can be shown. The commercial houses are with few 
exceptions lower in price than those which are maintained as 
charities. 

Two improvements are worthy of note. 

The Wayfarers' Lodge maintained by the Overseers of the 
Public Welfare of Boston has been thoroughly remodeled and 
provides a sanitary building, well equipped to care for a maxi- 
mum of 200. The present building is a credit to the city. 

At New Bedford the Men's Mission has erected a small, 
compact two-story brick building to accommodate 23 men. 
This building is provided with an adequate kitchen equipment 
and good bath and toilet rooms. There is a large, well-lighted 
dormitory with new furnishings and several small rooms. The 
location of this house is in that part of the city easily reached 
by the class who will patronize it, and every effort is being 
made by the management to provide at a small expense a com- 
fortable and pleasant home.

Temporary Aid. 

The temporary aid law provides that "a town may furnish 
aid to poor persons found therein, having no lawful settlements 
within the commonwealth," but "not for a greater amount 
than two dollars a week for each family during the months of 
May to September inclusive, or three dollars a week during the 
other months, except as otherwise ordered by the department of 
public welfare." 

The Department has deemed it expedient to generally au- 
thorize overseers of the poor to furnish such aid as is found 
from investigation to be necessary, pending its detailed investi- 
gation and action as provided by the statute. It seems wise to 
call attention to the fact that persons in good standing receiving 
this form of assistance are not deemed to be paupers. (Chapter 
116, section 4, General Laws.) 

On December 1, 1920, there were 1,557 continued cases, and 
during the year 6,536 notices were received from 205 cities and 
towns concerning 26,144 persons. 

The temporary aid law is a true barometer of industrial con- 
ditions, as shown by the large number of cases of unemploy- 
ment and insufficient income in the following tabulation : —

The amount reimbursed for aid rendered in 1921 is not in- 
cluded in the above tabulation, as the claims for the last six 
months of the year are not received until after the close of the 
fiscal year, as provided by chapter 122, section 19, General 
Laws. 

Shipwrecked Seamen. 

"Overseers of the poor of towns may provide transportation 
to destitute shipwrecked seamen from one place to another 
within the commonwealth, and such other assistance while they 
are waiting transportation, not exceeding ten dollars for each 
person, as the said overseers deem necessary. A detailed state- 
ment of expenses so incurred shall be rendered to the depart- 
ment of public welfare, and, after approval by it, such expenses 
shall be paid by the commonwealth from the appropriation for 
the temporary support of state paupers, without reference to 
the legal settlement of such seamen." (Chapter 102, section 5, 
General Laws.) 

During the year, 27 notices were received from the following 
towns; Hull 1, Nantucket 9, Truro 17. 



16 DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC WELFARE. [P. D. 17. 



Sick State Poor. 

The Commonwealth reimburses cities and towns for aid 
rendered to persons without legal settlement, ill in their homes 
or in city or town or private hospitals. The law limits such 
reimbursement to a rate not exceeding $10.50 per week for the 
support of a person in a city or town hospital for a period dur- 
ing w^hich the patient is unable to be removed to the State In- 
firmary, unless the Department of Public Welfare deems it 
expedient as an economy in expenditure, and in the interest of 
the patient's health, when it may authorize reimbursement for 
aid rendered after the patient has become able to be removed 
to the State Infirmary, and in its discretion until the patient 
is able to be discharged. (Chapter 122, sections 17 and 18, 
General Laws.) 

On December 1, 1920, there were 207 continued cases, and 
during the year 5,824 notices w^ere received from 109 cities 
and towns concerning 5,824 persons represented as too ill to be 
removed. 

Dangerous Diseases. 

The law provides that the reasonable expenses incurred by 
the board of health of a city or town, in making the provision 
required by law for persons infected with smallpox or other 
disease dangerous to the public health, shall be paid by the 
Commonwealth if the person has no settlement, provided the 
patient or kindred is unable to pay. Reimbursement for hos- 
pital care and treatment is limited to a rate not exceeding 
$10.50 per week, established by the sick State poor law. 

On December 1, 1920, there were 332 continued cases, and 
during the year 2,257 notices were received from 96 cities and 
towns concerning 2,257 persons. (Chapter 111, section 116, 
General Laws.) 

Wife-settlement. 
The law provides that "If a state pauper has a wife who 
is also a pauper having a legal settlement in this common- 
wealth, he shall be supported by the town where his wife has 
her settlement." (Chapter 122, section 12, General Laws.) 



Part I.

On December 1, 1920, there were 101 continued cases, and 
during the year 454 notices were received from 46 cities and 
towns, concerning 1,806 persons. 



Burial. 

Overseers of the poor are not hmited in the amounts that 
may be expended for burial, but in unsettled cases reim- 
bursement is limited to an amount not exceeding $30 for the 
funeral expenses of each person over twelve years, and not 
exceeding |15 for the funeral expenses for each person under 
that age; also, the Commonwealth is debarred from reim- 
bursing cities or towns for funeral expenses unless the overseers 
of the poor file with each claim an affidavit of the under- 
taker, stating the amount received from the city or town, and 
further stating that he has not received and will not accept 
money for such funeral expenses from any other source. 
(Chapter 117, section 17, General Laws.) 

The number of burial claims received was 301. 



Audit. 
The number, amount and allowance of the bills examined on 
account of cases of temporary aid, sick State poor, dangerous 
diseases, wife-settlement, burial, and mothers with dependent 
children are shown in the following tabulation. It is to be 
noted that the total shown in this table may vary somewhat 
from the total paid out of the treasury during the fiscal year 
from the appropriation in question. This possible variance 
arises from the fact that bills audited by this Department are 
in some cases not actually paid during the year for which the 
audit is shown. For actual expenditures from these respective 
appropriations see pages 145 to 149.

Subdivision of Mothers' Aid. 

Mrs. Elizabeth F. Moloney, Chief. 

The Massachusetts Mothers' Aid law is essentially a child 
welfare measure. The money which is paid under its provisions 
to a mother of dependent children is not in the nature of a 
gratuity or a pension due the mother because of the fact that 
she has borne children. The State is not primarily interested 
in the mother as an individual, but in her as the guardian and 
caretaker of her dependent children, — the future citizens of 
the State. 

In return for adequate aid, continuing, if necessary, over a 
period of years, the State has a right to expect that the mothers 
so aided shall maintain good standards of home care. Failure 
to maintain such standards causes a mother to forfeit her aid, 
and is likely to result in having the children taken from her 



20 DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC WELFARE. [P. D. 17. 

and placed with a competent foster-mother. The welfare of the 
children is of paramount importance. 

Each family presents its own special problem. In order to 
obtain the best results, it is necessary to formulate a con- 
structive plan for each family, and then to make adequate 
provision for carrying out the plan. 

Careful investigation of each application is the first step. 
While this investigation is going forward interim relief under 
the law is available. Time spent in verifying births and mar- 
riages, in checking up bank accounts, insurance moneys received, 
property facts and wages, and in pressing any legal rights that 
an applicant may have is time well spent. The more thorough 
and painstaking the investigation is, the better. 

In estimating the needs of a family, it is necessary to consider 
not only the number of persons, but also the age, the health, 
the special needs and the capabilities and handicaps of each 
member. The racial characteristics and food preferences of the 
family, the skill of the mother in household management, the 
former standards of living, and the standards of living of self- 
supporting families in the community must be kept in mind. 

There are minimum standards of decency and comfort which 
govern housing and fuel expenses, and there are scientific 
estimates of clothing and food requirements of persons of differ- 
ent ages which serve as guides in making family budgets. 

The expenses include rent, fuel, clothing, food and sundries. 
The income includes net earnings and regular help from rela- 
tives or other sources. The difference between the weekly 
expenses and the weekly income indicates the amount of aid 
which a family needs at a given time. Family needs vary, 
and the grants of aid should vary with the needs. In times of 
sickness and during convalescence the expenses increase and 
more aid is needed. Then, too, there are often special needs 
such as glasses, special shoes, braces and the like, moving ex- 
penses, replacement of bedding, house furnishings, etc., which 
demand extra grants of money. On the other hand, as the 
children grow older and earn higher wages the income increases 
so that aid can be gradually reduced as the family becomes 
more nearly self-supporting. 

Constructive case work with families means a careful first 
investigation, the formulation of a family plan, the adoption 



Part I.] DIVISION OF AID AND RELIEF. 21 

of a family budget, and then constant, kindly follow-up to see 
that the plan is working out well, and to adjust the aid to the 
changing needs of the family. 

Cost of Living. 

During the year the cost of living has remained high with 
only some slight decreases. Rents were very high and they 
have been increasing. While a few articles of clothing (and 
cotton goods by the yard) are much cheaper, good shoes for 
children, rubbers and clothing prices in general are still high. 

Coal is cheaper by the ton, but as many mothers are forced 
to buy their coal by the bag, they have to pay for it at the rate 
of $20 per ton. Many overseers of the poor, in addition to the 
regular Mothers' Aid allowance, furnish coal in quarter and 
half ton lots during the winter months. One overseer sent 
to each of his Mothers' Aid families two tons of coal. He con- 
tracted for it during the summer, and it was delivered in the 
fall when the dealers could more easily cart it. He claims that 
the mothers did not waste the fuel because it was delivered in 
two-ton lots rather than in quarter tons. He pointed out the 
fact that many of these same families were in the habit of 
putting in several tons of coal at a time when their husbands 
were living and supporting them. 

Food has decreased in price more than any other item of the 
budget. Bread, flour, eggs, milk, butter, lard, sugar, cereals, 
dried fruits, fish and potatoes are some of the staples that have 
materially decreased in price. Meats remain high in price, and 
consequently very little meat is used by Mothers' Aid families. 

Whether due to skill or to intuition, the average mother of 
small means feeds her children on good, plain, nourishing food. 
Some mothers need special help and advice in planning how to 
spend their weekly allowance to the best advantage. 

Unemployment. 
During the past year unemployment has been a factor in 
Mothers' Aid cases. Families which had become self-support- 
ing because of the steady earnings of the older children were 
obliged to apply again for Mothers' Aid when the closing of 
workshops and factories threw these wage-earning members of 



22 DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC WELFARE. [P. D. 17. 

the family out of employment. Some of the older boys and 
girls have been out of work for months at a time, and others 
have returned to work at lower wages or on part time. 

It has been increasingly difficult for children from fourteen 
to sixteen years of age to get work, so that many children of 
these ages have been kept at school from necessity. This has 
really been a blessing in disguise to the children, who are thus 
given a chance to get more schooling than they would other- 
wise be allowed. 

The mothers of families report that they have been able to 
get much less "day work" to do because many of those who 
in prosperous times hire women to wash and clean have been 
obliged to curtail such expenses. 

Statistics. 

x\t the beginning of the fiscal year (on December 1, 1920) 
there were 3,330 mothers with 10,534 dependent children under 
fourteen years of age receiving Mothers' Aid. 

During the year 941 new cases were added and 864 cases 
were closed, so that there were 3,407 mothers in receipt of 
Mothers' Aid at the close of the fiscal year (November 30, 
1921). 

On December 1, 1920, the 3,330 mothers with 10,534 de- 
pendent children were classified as follows : — 

A. Classified as to legal settlement: 

1. Without legal settlement: 

588 mothers with 1,761 dependent children. 

2. With a legal settlement: 

2,742 mothers with 8,773 dependent children. 

B. Classified as to widowhood: 

1. Widows: 

2,798 mothers with 8,857 dependent children. 

2. Not widows: 

532 mothers with 1,677 dependent children. 
Note. — The living husbands of the 532 mothers were classified 
as follows : — 
290 were totally incapacitated (83 were insane, 207 
had chronic illness; of the latter, 139 had tuber- 
culosis and 68 other than tuberculosis). 
191 were deserting husbands. 
32 were divorced or legally separated. 
19 were in jail. 



Part L] DIVISION OF AID AND RELIEF. 23 

The new cases that were received during the fiscal year in- 
cluded 941 mothers with 3,016 dependent children, and were 
classified as follows: — 

A. Classified as to legal settlement: 

1. Without legal settlement : 

155 mothers with 460 dependent children. 

2. With a legal settlement : 

786 mothers with 2,556 dependent children. 

B. Classified as to widowhood: 

1. Widows: 

619 mothers with 1,985 dependent children. 

2. Not widows: 

322 mothers with 1,031 dependent children. 
Note. — The living husbands of the 322 mothers were classi- 
fied as follows: — 
193 were totally incapacitated (46 were insane, 
147 had chronic illness; of the latter, 95 had 
tuberculosis and 52 other than tuberculosis). 
90 were des,erting husbands. 
16 were divorced or legally separated. 
23 were in jail. 

Causes of Dependency. 

The death of the father of the family was the chief cause of 
dependency, nearly 4 out of every 5 mothers who were aided 
being widows. 

In the case of the .living fathers, by far the greatest number 
were afflicted with chronic illness (2 out of 3 of the sick fathers 
being tubercular) . 

Of the living fathers, 41.5 per cent were chronically ill. 
Grouping the deserting fathers and those who were divorced or 
legally separated from their wives, 38.5 per cent of the living 
fathers fell into this class; 15.1 per cent of the living fathers 
were insane, and 4.9 per cent of the living fathers were in jail. 

Thus the causes of dependency in the order of their impor- 
tance were : — 

1. Death of father. 

2. Chronic illness of father. 

3. Desertion or divorce of father. 

4. Insanity of father. 

5. Commitment of father to jail. 



24 DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC WELFARE. [P. D. 17. 



Reasons for closing Mothers' Aid Cases. 

Of the 86J}. cases closed during the year, by far the greater 
number were closed because there was no further need of pubHc 
aid. In 340 of these cases the earnings of the children had in- 
creased. In 55 cases the husbands had returned from hospitals 
or other institutions and had assumed the support of their 
families. One hundred and nineteen mothers remarried and 
their new husbands assumed the support of their children. 

Six cases were closed because the mother had not resided in 
Massachusetts for three years next prior to the date of her 
application for Mothers' Aid. Twenty withdrew their applica- 
tions for aid directly after the applications were recorded. 
Eleven mothers were committed to State hospitals for the 
insane or to other institutions for incurables. Fifteen mothers 
died. 

In 35 cases the youngest child became fourteen years of age 
and the cases were automatically closed. 

Forty-six mothers were found to be unfit to bring up their 
children properly. In most of these cases the mother was 
immoral and in some cases the mother had given birth to an 
illegitimate child. Nineteen cases were closed because of the 
presence of male lodgers. The male lodger has proved to be a 
most undesirable element in these fatherless families, and he 
should be rigidly excluded. 

One mother decided to place her children in an orphanage, 
and 8 others persisted in boarding out some of their dependent 
children instead of bringing them up in their own homes as 
required under the Mothers' Aid law. 

In 24 cases the applicant for Mothers' Aid was found to have 
equity in property greater than $500, or else she was making 
co-operative bank payments or other payments which increased 
her equity. Many property cases which were at first dis- 
approved because they did not conform to our property policy 
were later adjusted so that it was possible to grant Mothers' 
Aid under the changed conditions. 

Forty-five mothers were found to have more than $200 cash 
on hand, so that weekly grants of Mothers' Aid were sus-

pended until the cash on hand in excess of $200 had been used 
for the living expenses of the family. 

In 11 cases the mother with only one dependent child was 
refused Mothers' Aid when it was shown that the mother was 
in good health, and that it was possible for her to become self- 
supporting by changing her plan of living. In several cases the 
young mother and her one child returned to live with her 
parents who agreed to take care of the child while the mother 
worked and fully supported both herself and child. 

Thirteen cases were transferred to other forms of aid, such as. 
temporary aid, to take care of a purely temporary need, or 
military aid, where the military service of the father of the- 
family entitled his dependents to adequate State aid, soldiers^ 
pension or soldiers' relief. 

In 112 cases aid was closed because the applicant moved out 
of a given town. Many of these cases were later reopened in 
the city or town to which the family removed. 

A record was kept of the length of time for which the 864 
cases which were closed had been aided. Three hundred forty- 
three of them had been aided for less than one year; 8 had 
been aided for eight years. 



Duration of Mothers' Aid Cases closed between December 1, 1920, and 
. November 30, 1921.

30 DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC WELFARE. [P. D. 17. 

Subdivision of Social Service. 

Miss Flora. E. Burton, Chief. 

Eight hundred fifty-five women and children were admitted 
to the State Infirmary during the year, including 192 who were 
wards of the Division of Child Guardianship, the Industrial 
School for Girls, the Lyman School for Boys or the Reforma- 
tory for Women. There were 109 births. 

The total number discharged was 800, including 266 who 
were discharged to the above-named State ofiices. 

Intensive work has always been given to maternity cases, 
and to dependent women with children, admitted to the State 
Infirmary. These are the most difiicult problems to solve, and 
take much time. Nevertheless, it has been possible for the 
visitors to give equally careful study and supervision to the 
other classes of cases enumerated below. 

Children. — One visitor has entire care of those children at 
the State Infirmary who are not State wards. The largest 
group, consisting of 13 boys and 9 girls, whose ages varied from 
fifteen months to twelve years, was the tubercular group. Two 
of these children were discharged to the Westfield State Sana- 
torium, and one died. It is noteworthy that we have to record 
only one death, a little girl who was dangerously ill when 
admitted. The visitor investigates the homes from which these 
children have been sent, and if satisfactory, the children are 
returned upon their discharge. If the home is found unsuitable, 
the child is referred to the Division of Child Guardianship for 
placement in a foster home. 

The next group consisted of 14 children having congenital 
syphilis and gonorrhea. The placing of these children involves 
careful investigation and more careful follow-up work to see 
that visits are made to the clinics for further treatment. In 
these cases the source of infection must be traced. The parents 
of congenitally syphilitic children must be advised to go to the 
hospital for examination for the benefit of future children, and 
the family in which gonorrhea has appeared must also have 
careful examination and instruction. 

Miscellaneous diseases appear in many of the children, due 
largely to ignorance of parents, bad housing or malnutrition. 



Part I.] DIVISION OF AID AND RELIEF. 31 

It is our aim not to return a child to the same bad environ- 
ment which caused the illness. 

Tubercular Patients. — The visitor who has the responsibility 
for these patients has given special attention to the bed cases. 
The bed patients have been taught to crochet useful articles, 
and fruits and other delicacies have frequently been provided, 
with the result that they are more contented. When dis- 
charged, they are referred to the public health authorities of 
the town of their residence for continued observation. A new 
volunteer visitor has taken great interest in the tubercular 
patients, and is providing an excellent library of modern books 
and magazines for their use. These patients have not hereto- 
fore had access to the institution library because of the danger 
of contagion. 

Aged Women. — If all the wards could be as suitable and as 
homelike as the special ward for the old ladies, the difficulties 
in persuading patients to remain for the necessary period would 
be minimized. Single rooms and two small wards give privacy 
and the possibility of having personal possessions. This ward 
is an expression of the humaneness of the superintendent and 
his staff, and the comfort which they would like to give to all 
the patients. 

In the spring of the year the aged women at the infirmary 
who are able-bodied are , allowed to go out to work which is 
secured for them. Sometimes they retain the work for the 
summer, but more often for only a short time. Often we find 
them sitting on the benches of the Common. However, they 
earn enough money by cleaning and dishwashing to keep them 
in food and shelter through the warm weather. Their in- 
firmities, no work, and cold weather, invariably drive them back 
to the Infirmary. Nevertheless, the freedom and independence 
of a few months makes them more content to return, and also 
relieves the institution from being always overcrowded. If the 
senile old women could be segregated, the comfort of those 
remaining in the house ward would be greatly improved. 

Drug Addicts. — The drug addict is the most difficult patient 
to place in the community. Her stay at the hospital is far too 
short to be of any curative value, yet we cannot keep a vol- 
untary patient against her will. The patient or her relatives 



32 DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC WELFARE. [P. D. 17. 

usually insist on discharge as soon as the patient begins to feel 
better. As far as physical condition goes, the patients get over 
the acute illness, only to have it return when they get the 
drug again. We place them at work in carefully selected homes, 
and find that they steal away in the night, or do not return 
when given free time. They are sly and untruthful. Family, 
religion or employment have no influence, because they desire 
their own companions and their drugs. Morally and spiritually 
they are not ready to face the world. Only when this per- 
nicious thing is entirely removed from the body by careful 
treatment over a long period of time, one year at least, can we 
ever hope to help these pitiful sufferers back to self-respect and 
usefulness. We urge adequate treatment and legal restraint, 
because these patients are incapable of making a reasonable 
decision in their afflicted condition. 

Syphilis and Gonorrhea. — One hundred sixteen girls and 
women were admitted to the State Infirmary during the year 
with a diagnosis of syphilis or gonorrhea. The Wassermann 
test brought to light for treatment many additional cases of 
latent syphilis. The syphilitic patients remain three months 
for intensive treatment, and usually at the end of that time 
they are ready for out-patient care. Gonorrhea is very uncer- 
tain, requiring from three to six months' treatment, or even 
longer. This group of women presents a difficult disciplinary 
problem for the Infirmary. The patients, feeling well physi- 
cally, have much energy which has no wholesome outlet. The 
lack of freedom and the feeling of restraint results in many 
misdemeanors. When placed at w^ork these girls do very well, 
but it is only constant urging which induces them to attend 
the out-patient clinics. We lose contact with these girls more 
frequently than with those having babies, because the babies 
are an incentive to the mothers to do well and to attend the 
clinics. 

Mothers with Babies. — There is little to add to the report of 
past years in the treatment of mothers with babies. Their 
most important needs are work and intelhgent supervision in 
the community. The mothers who are easily cared for and 
who do not present any psychopathic problems receive very 
little consideration. Those who are difficult require weeks of 



Part I.] DIVISION OF AID AND RELIEF. 33 

effort in placing and replacing and in teaching them how to live 
peacefully in society. Health is so important a feature in the 
treatment that mothers and babies are a medical social prob- 
lem as well as a placement problem. We should like to see all 
unmarried mothers and babies given a fair chance to win their 
way back to self-respect and support. It is impossible to give 
them the specialized treatment needed, because the cases are 
distributed among so many agencies each of which cares for 
only a few mothers. The child-placing worker does not under- 
stand this problem, try as she conscientiously does, because 
she has only one or two cases a year. We are constantly meet- 
ing the results of misdirected efforts to care for our unmarried 
mothers. For a square deal, there should be a plan of cen- 
tralization covering the State, and specially trained persons 
should be assigned to investigate and help these women. The 
responsibility for such a plan should be divided between public 
and private agencies. The mothers with the better back- 
ground who are first offenders should go to private care; the 
second offenders, and the mothers of low mental capacity 
should be assumed by the public agency. 

Visitors. — Through the kindly interest of a member of the 
advisory board of the Department, the State Infirmary has 
this year found several new and generous friends. Four ladies 
visit the patients monthly, always laden with delicacies and 
good cheer, and one volunteer, already mentioned, makes 
weekly visits to the tubercular ward and the ward for 
older women. This volunteer interest gives great joy to the 
patients. 

The stress of work during the year has been a severe tax 
upon the physical and mental resources of our limited staff, 
comprising a supervisor and four visitors. Any one who can 
visuaHze the social problems arising in connection with the 
supervision of 855 admissions, 534 discharges, and 245 women 
with children in the community who have received after care, 
must appreciate the devotion and unselfishness of the visitors. 
The need of an additional visitor is very urgent, and is recom- 
mended.

DIVISION OF CHILD GUARDIANSHIP. 

James E. Fee, Director. 

Children in Care and Custody of the Division. 

At the beginning of the last official year, December 1, 1920, 
there were 6,316 children in the care and custody of the Divi- 
sion of Child Guardianship, — 248 delinquent, 36 wayward, 
3,312 neglected and 2,720 dependent. During the year 834 
children were received, viz., 98 delinquent, 8 wayward, 269 
neglected and 459 dependent. The total number during the 
year was 7,150. There were 934 discharged, viz., 130 de- 
linquent, 9 wayward, 404 neglected and 391 dependent. At the 
close of the year, November 30, 1921, there remained in charge 
of the Division of Child Guardianship 6,216 children classified 
as: delinquent 216, wayward 35, neglected, 3,177, and de- 
pendent 2,788. 

Five thousand eight hundred fifty-one of the 6,216 children 
under care November 30, 1921, were over three years of age 
and cared for as follows: In places receiving wages, 636; in 
places free of expense to the State, 705; in places partly sup- 
ported by the State, 181; in places fully supported by the 
State, 3,417; at the State Infirmary and other institutions, 
not correctional, subject to care and treatment, 693; in United 
States service, 73; married, 41; and whereabouts unknown, 
105. 

Three hundred sixty-five children in the total under care 
November 30, 1921, who were under three years of age, were 
classified as follows: in homes free of expense, 21; in homes 
fully supported by the State, 320; at the State Infirmary or 
other institutions, 24. One hundred forty-six in this group 
reached the age of three years during the year.^ 

1 In addition to these 6,216 children, the Department had under its supervision and visitation 
November 30, 1921 : 465 boys at the Lyman School for Boys; 284 girls at the Industrial School for 
Girls; 317 boys at the Industrial School for Boys; 2,647 boys and 482 girls in the custody of the 
Trustees of Massachusetts Training Schools, outside the schools; 132 boys and 98 girls, inmates of 
the Massachusetts Hospital School; 157 children, patients at the State Infirmary, who are either 
young infants v/ith their mothers, or else under hospital treatment; and 1,241 children supported 
at the expense of the cities and towns, making approximately a total of 12,039 children in the care 
and custody or under the supervision of the Department. 



Part L] DIVISION OF CHILD GUARDIANSHIP. 39 



Children under Three Years of Age. 

The total number of infants in charge of the Division on 
November 30, 1920 was 381; the number received during the 
year was 233, making the whole number supported 614. There 
remained on November 30, 1921, 365 infants. Eight of the 
614 infants supported were legally adopted; 146 reached the 
age of three years and were transferred to the subdivision of 
older children; 49 were discharged to parents or relatives; 5 
to place of settlement; 9 to courts; 2 were released on bail; 
and 30 died. Twenty-one of the remaining 365 were in free 
homes. 

Fifty-nine of the 233 infants received were committed by the 
overseers of the poor and 5 by the superintendent of the State 
Infirmary under the provisions of section 22, chapter 119 of the 
General Laws. Twenty of this number were foundlings, and 
the remainder were indigent infants, having no settlement in 
the Commonwealth. 

One hundred twenty-four infants were received under the 
provisions of section 38, chapter 119, and 43 were committed 
as neglected under the provisions of section 42, chapter 119; 
2 were removed under the provisions of section 28 of the same 
chapter. 

Three hundred forty-seven children were admitted to the 
Nursery. 

All children are vaccinated when received if there are no 
marks showing a previous successful vaccination. 

The medical visitor and visiting nurses made 8,912 visits. 
This number includes visits to infants boarded in families, 
investigation of homes of applicants for infants to board, and 
inspection of homes of applicants for licenses to board infants; 
also physical examination of children at this office and at the 
Nursery. 

Infant Mortality. 
The total number of children under three years of age sup- 
ported during the year was 614, 30 of whom died, showing 
a mortality rate of 4.88 per cent. 



40 DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC WELFARE. [P. D. 17. 

The number of infants under one year of age supported 
during the year was 170, of whom 16 died, making the mortal- 
ity rate for this group 9.41 per cent.

The fact that the mortality rate for this year is the lowest 
yet recorded strengthens the theory that the present system of 
boarding infants and the methods of supervision are effective. 
Under the present system infants are sent to the hospital only 
if they are difficult feeding cases or seriously ill; if for the 
former reason, they are returned to the home as soon as the 
correct formula is found. Ordinarily, sick infants are attended 
at the boarding homes by the family physician, while the de- 
partmental nurse makes frequent or, if necessary, daily visits 
until recovery. 

After a careful analysis of the deaths during the past year it. 
was found that 2 were sent on reception to the State Infirmary 
where they died, 9 occurred at other hospitals, and only 5 



42 DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC WELFARE. [P. D. 17. 

occurred in the foster homes, — 3 died of uncontrollable diseases, 
while the other 2 were in poor physical condition from the be- 
ginning and died of intestinal trouble. 

Childeen over Three Years of Age. 

During the year 747 children were received; this number 
includes 601 new cases and 146 transferred from subdivision 
for infants; 20 died, 250 became of age, 47 were adopted and 
514 otherwise discharged. At the close of the year the number 
over three years of age under care was 5,851, — 3,217 boys and 
2,634 girls. The decrease in population for the year is 84, or 
1.4 per cent. 

In this subdivision there are 831 girls over fourteen years of 
age, exclusive of 223 who are classified as feeble-minded. Four 
hundred nineteen, or 50.4 per cent, are attending school under 
the following conditions: 20 on visit or parole with parents; 
57 receiving wages; 46 receiving board and clothing free of 
expense to the State; 115 partly free; and 197 for whom 
board is paid. One hundred ninety-two are at grammar school, 
195 at high school, 16 at trade school, 5 at normal school, 2 
at business school and 2 at college. There are also 31 who are 
attending evening school. Thirty-seven of the remaining 412 
are married and living in their own homes, while 146 are em- 
ployed at housework. There are two girls doing millinery and 
dressmaking. Many of the girls have engaged in industry, 
59 being employed in factory work, 10 in stores and 43 in 
oflBces. These latter are serving in the capacity of stenog- 
raphers, dictaphone operators or clerks. Four are telephone 
operators and one a telegraph operator. Hospital work makes a 
strong appeal to many of the girls, and there are 12 taking 
the training course for nurses in various hospitals in the State. 
As a result of previous normal school training, two are teach- 
ing. One is employed in a library. 

The variety of occupations in which the girls are engaged 
indicates that they are able to take advantage of the same 
opportunities which would come to the average girl living in 
her own family. Another evident fact is that many are ambi- 
tious and seek opportunities through which they can continu- 
ally raise their standards of living. 



PartL] DIVISION OF CHILD GUARDIANSHIP. 43 

Visitors to older girls attended 186 girls' cases in juvenile 
sessions of courts where no woman probation officer is em- 
ployed. 

In five of these cases a wayward complaint was made. One 
was dismissed, two girls were committed temporarily to this 
Division and later dismissed, one was placed on probation 
and one permanently committed to our care. 

There were 181 cases of delinquency, with specific charges, as 
follows: stubborn, 86; lewd and lascivious, 26; larceny, 20; 
fornication, 18; runaway, 8; truancy, 7; idle and disorderly, 
6; assault and battery, 4; injury to property, 2; vagrancy, 1; 
disturbing the school, 1; violating Sunday law, 1; and selling 
cigarettes to minors, 1. 

Seventy of these cases required more than one hearing before 
the final disposition could be made, so that out of the 181 
cases enumerated above only 111 were actually new. On each 
occasion, however, a visitor from this Division was present to 
advise. 

It will be noticed that a large majority of these cases were 
stubborn, which would seem to indicate a deplorable lack of 
parental control. 

The final dispositions were as follows: 37 committed to the 
Industrial School at Lancaster, 4 given a suspended sentence to 
the same institution, 16 dismissed, 8 filed, 3 defaulted, 33 
placed on probation, and 10 committed to our Division for 
permanent care. 

There is little new to report on the subject of the feeble- 
minded. Their commitment to the schools — the proper 
destination for the majority — still remains, for want of room, 
a very slow process. 

During the . year two boys and 23 girls were admitted at 
Wrentham, and 12 boys and 7 girls at Waverley. This in- 
cluded 21 girls and 5 boys transferred from the State Infirmary. 
There yet remain, however, at the Infirmary, 81 boys and 68 
girls of all ages, classified as feeble-minded, with no immediate 
prospect of transfer. 

There were on November 30, 1920, at board in special homes 
awaiting admission to the schools, 89 girls from ^ve to twenty- 
one years old (80 per cent over fourteen years), and 52 boys 



44 DEPARTMEXT OF PUBLIC ^^TLFAEE. [P. D. 17. 

from seven to sixteen years old, 40 of whom attend school. 
The inability of the majority of these children to keep up with 
classes even below their age and their influence on normal 
children make attendance at public schools undesirable. 

The grown girls are taught to sew, mend, cook and keep 
house, with varying degrees of success. Xow and then one 
shows sufficient ability to warrant placing in a family for wages, 
where close supervision can be assured. Fourteen are now self- 
supporting in this way. Twelve girls have been allowed to go 
to relatives on probation, and are giving no trouble. 

It is extremely difficult to obtain boarding homes for this 
class. There is no difficulty in finding a wage home for a 
fairly competent girl. 

When the law permitting the commitment of the feeble- 
minded to the Department of Mental Diseases for supervision 
in the community is in operation a larger number could be 
given a trial in family homes. At present our supervision ends 
when they become twenty-one years of age. 

Investigatixg Department. 

Reports of relief agencies, public and private, for the past 
year show a tremendous influx of work due to unemployment. 
Because our policies have constantly been against disrupting 
a family for dependency alone, our numbers have not materi- 
ally increased. We have received applications from distracted 
parents who, now that their savings have gone, feel that the 
only remedy is to place their children and allow the mother to 
become the breadwinner. These applications rarely result in 
acceptances, but we have endeavored to connect these parents 
with other sources of relief. 

As always, we find the most hopeless situation that of the 
widower with a large family. Even a good job does not solve 
his problem, and almost invariably he is forced to break up his 
home. We are more and more called on to relieve this sort of 
situation, as the private agencies increasingly refuse cases with- 
out full support. Other than in this particular kind of case we 
feel that along with the poverty should be some other decisive 
factor to indicate the removal of children. Sickness and mental 
disorder are the most common causes. 



Part LI DIVISION OF CHILD GUARDIANSHIP.

In making up the statistics for the year a noticeable varia- 
tion from those of previous years is evident, which illustrates 
the change in policies of private agencies. If investigation 
proves the case to be in the province of another organization, 
it is taken up with that agency and transferred if an agreement 
is reached. 

Statistics for the past four years are as follows: —

The large numbers in 1918-19 are directly traceable to the 
influenza epidemic. 

This Department feels justified in forcing financial responsi- 
bility on the shoulders where it belongs, and regardless of the 
returns is sure that good constructive work is accomplished 
thereby. If a low-grade mother of an illegitimate child is 
mentally inadequate to cope with the discipline of her growing 
child and is relieved by us, even though her earning power is 
small we urge a contribution, sometimes no more than 25 cents 
per week. It is easy to let another bear the burden, and some- 
times well-intentioned parents, visiting regularly and satisfied 
that their children are well cared for, fail to meet their obliga- 
tions relative to support. Some feel that the Commonwealth 
should assume all expense, but in these cases we encourage 
contributions as large as possible, and by so doing increase self- 
respect and develop a sense of duty. Even with the problem of 
unemployment, our last year's returns are not much affected. 

Following are the statistics of the investigating depart- 
ment : —

The receipts for contributory support of children in charge of 
the Department are shown in the following table. 

Payments are received from parents upon voluntary agree- 
ment, also from probation officers of the various courts upon 
orders issued at time of commitment; in some cases, when 
parents have been able but unwilling to contribute, we have 
been obliged to prosecute for non-support. 

The unemployment situation is reflected in a decrease over 
the previous year in the amount of contributory support re- 
ceived during the year direct from parents. The probation 
officers report that a large percentage of those hitherto paying 
regularly are now unemployed.

Sixty-one children have been placed on trial for adoption 
during the year. Fifty-five children were legally adopted, — 
30 girls and 25 boys. The oldest child adopted was a girl 
sixteen years of age, and the youngest a boy ten months old. 

There are now on trial for adoption seventy-nine children.

Licensed Boarding Houses for Infants. 

During the last official year 298 licenses to maintain board- 
ing houses for infants were granted under the provisions of 
General Laws, chapter 119, section 2, in 82 cities and towns, in 
addition to the 317 licenses in force at the expiration of the 
previous year; 264 licenses expired by the one-year limitation; 
3 were canceled because of death of boarding women, 32 were 
canceled because of changes of residence; 1 was revoked 
because of improper care of infants; 21 were withdrawn; and 
315 licenses, permitting the boarding of 654 infants in 76 cities 
and towns, remained in force November 30, 1921. These rep- 
resent the licensed homes, not only of infants supported by the 
Commonwealth, but also of those under the age of two years 
placed out by parents and many private agencies. 

The following table shows the number of licenses issued, the 
number of cities and towns where licensees reside, the number

of licenses expired, revoked, canceled and refused, the whole 
number in force, etc., for the year ending November 30, 1921,

60 DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC WELFARE. [P. D. 17. 

During the past year the State nurses have made 1,707 visits 
to infants placed in homes under private supervision and the 
supervision of societies. (Visits to infants under the super- 
vision of the Department of Public Welfare are not included.) 

It has been necessary to take court action in private cases 
where laws governing the protection of infants (chapter 119) 
were willfully violated, and strict supervision is being kept in 
many instances.

The trustees have held twelve meetings during the year in 
addition to forty- three meetings of various committees. Each 
request for the release or parole of a boy or girl is given careful 
and thorough attention by the trustees. A total of 138 separate 
visits have been made to the three schools by members of the 
Board of Trustees during the past year. In addition to these 
visits made by the trustees, the executive secretary of the 
Board has visited the three schools fifty- two times during the 
year. When a boy is ready for parole, the parole visitor in- 
vestigates his home and makes a report to the trustees. If the 
boy's home seems to offer a fair chance of his succeeding there 
on his return, the trustees will give him a trial at home. If he 
does not succeed, he will be returned to the school and perhaps 
placed out with a family in the country until he seems worthy 
of another trial at home. 

If he has no home, or if it seems inadvisable to parole him in 
his own home, he is secured a foster home on a farm or else- 
where. 

At the Industrial School for Boys every boy whose case is 
considered for parole is interviewed personally by a committee 
of the trustees. At the Lyman School for Boys the trustees see 
personally only those boys who are returned to the school for 
violation of their parole. 



76 DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC WELFARE. [P. D. 17. 

Notwithstanding the industrial depression a large net gain 
in the savings of wards was made in each parole department. 
The Boy's Parole Branch reported a total balance on deposit 
at the close of the fiscal year of $19,877.81, representing 692 
accounts, this being a net gain of $5,028.02 over last year. The 
Girls' Parole Branch had a balance on deposit of $17,994.40, 
representing 358 accounts, compared with $14,251.14 for the 
corresponding period of 1920, a net gain of $3,743.26. 

The three training schools in this Division are reported on 
separately, see pages 102 to 108. 

Boys' Parole Branch. 

John J. Smith, Superintendent. 

The year 1921 will long be remembered by each visitor in 
this branch as a period which tested his patience, resourceful- 
ness and ability to handle difficult problems. Disturbed in- 
dustrial conditions, the necessity of complying with school 
attendance laws, and the spirit of unrest which is still so 
prevalent, — all operated to the disadvantage of our boys. 
Yet, notwithstanding the unusual features, it is encouraging 
to note that results on the whole were extremely satisfactory. 
At the close of the year approximately 75 per cent of our wards 
were doing well. Of the 139 Lyman and 144 Shirley boys who 
became of age during the year 68 per cent were doing well 
when they attained their majority. Twenty boys on parole 
from Lyman School for Boys and 12 boys on parole from the 
Industrial School for Boys, who became of age in 1921, were 
granted honorable discharge by the trustees. The 68 per 
cent mentioned above does not include those boys who were 
honorably discharged. 

A close study of the statistics incorporated in this report will 
give some idea of the amount of work involved in our problem. 
Roughly speaking, there were 13,000 visits made during the 
year; 1,350 homes of boys investigated; and in addition, more 
than 250 foster homes were investigated, most of which proved 
satisfactory. 



Partl.l DIVISION OF JUVENILE TRAINING. 77 



CONSTKUCTIVE WORK. 

Constructive work on parole, however, was to a large extent 
neglected, as a result of emergency work. Our visitors spent 
more than 1,500 hours in seeking runaways from place and from 
both institutions, and over 2,000 hours in looking for jobs for 
boys. They were also obliged to attend court 463 days, and on 
most of these days had to return boys either to the Lyman 
School for Boys or to the Industrial School for Boys. With 
such a large number of boys on parole, it seems unfortunate 
that our visitors have to spend so much time in seeking school 
runaways and returning them. I feel strongly that much better 
results could be obtained if the matter of returning school 
runaways were not considered a part of our visitors' work. It 
seems a waste of time and money, when one who could do the 
work just as well could be engaged at a much smaller salary. 
It is logical, however, to expect our visitors to devote some time 
to locating school runaways, but once located I feel it should 
be the business of the school authorities to see that such boys 
are returned. 

The need of constructive work on parole was never so appar- 
ent as at present. Unfortunately, however, our visitors are 
overburdened with more cases than they can properly attend 
to. I hope the day is not far distant when the need of con- 
structive work in the homes becomes so obvious that our force 
of visitors will be increased to handle adequately the problem. 

Unemployment. 

In the transition period from abnormally high wages to re- 
duced employment our visitors were keenly alive to their 
responsibilities, and prepared their boys for the inevitable break 
in wages. The result was, therefore, that most of our boys held 
their jobs. In a way it is truly remarkable that so many of 
them, poorly equipped mentally and physically, have retained 
their employment, when others, better equipped, have failed. 

Yet we still have unemployment as a disturbing factor. In- 
dustrial conditions have not been so bad for years. Unem- 
ployment in the large cities is so common that unless due care 
is taken by our visitors our wards may offer unemployment as 



78 DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC WELFARE. [P. D. 17. 

an excuse for their lack of desire to work. In such cases the 
visitor must know his boys and understand whether they are 
in earnest or lazy. Conditions in the country districts have 
also changed a great deal during the year. Lack of employ- 
ment in the cities has driven many people to the farms in search 
of work, and for the first time in years the farmer has ceased 
to be an errand boy for his hired help. It is not surprising, 
therefore, that some of our boys, lacking in mental poise, and 
not over fond of farm work, have not been able to hold their 
jobs under competition. 

I notice, too, a growing feeling among parents of some of our 
boys who find it hard to support them under present industrial 
conditions, to complain to the visitors in the hope that they 
will remove their boys until conditions improve and they can 
again become an earning power in the home. 

School Attendance. 
Among our boys of school age who formerly worked and w^ere 
thrown out of employment, are those whom it is almost impos- 
sible to get to return to school and not be truants. Primarily 
they left school because they disliked it, and their dislike has 
been accentuated the longer they have been free of school. 

Statistics. 

A disturbing feature of the year's work was the large number 
of boys who were returned to Lyman School for Boys. The 
total number was 458, of which number 355 were returned for 
violation of parole, and 103 for relocation and other purposes. 
It is hard to put one's finger on any definite reason for so many 
returns, but the consensus of opinion among our visitors is that 
returned boys were not disciplined enough, with the result that 
they looked upon a return to the school as of minor conse- 
quence. Efforts have been made at the school to make the stay 
of a returned boy less pleasant, and it is hoped that beneficial 
results will follow. 

During the year 39 boys on parole from Lyman School for 
Boys and 25 on parole from the Industrial School for Boys were 
granted honorable discharges by the trustees. 



Part L] DIVISION OF JUVENILE TRAINING. 79 

A glance at the statistical table will show a large number of 
our boys on parole whose whereabouts and occupation are un- 
known. Undoubtedly this is accounted for by the spirit of the 
times, which sends so many young men wandering all over the 
country. 

Savings of Waeds. 

During the year the net gain in deposits of wards in our care 
was $5,028.02. The total balance on deposit at the close of the 
fiscal year was $19,877.81. This represents 692 accounts. The 
large net increase in deposits may be accounted for by the fact 
that our visitors were exercising great care in collecting wages 
due. The experiment of buying boys^ clothing through the 
ofhce has worked to good advantage, and marked savings are 
made. 

The work of the visitors and office force has been most 
satisfactory, and the superintendent wishes to acknowledge 
appreciation of their efforts. 

Girls' Parole Branch. 

Miss Edith N. Burleigh, Superintendent, 

Girls on parole from an institution for delinquents present 
from year to year much the same problems. One of the chief 
obstacles to overcome this year has been a great increase in the 
number of girls on parole. There have been 572 different girls 
on parole during the whole or a part of the year. Last year 
there were 506. The daily average number of girls has been 
349.33. The daily average has increased steadily in the last 
five years from 267 in 1917 to 349.33 in 1921. The weekly per 
capita cost has increased from $1.43 in 1917 to $1.89 in 1921. 

One hundred sixty-nine girls paroled for the first time and 
63 girls reparoled have been taken from the school on parole 
this year, a total of 232 girls. This is the largest number taken 
from the school in one year. 

An increase in the number of girls in the charge of each 
visitor has been added to somewhat by the withdrawal of one 
visitor, who has been in charge of finding homes and employ- 
ment for about six and one-half years, and who has visited 



80 DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC WELFARE. [P. D. 17. 

from ten to twenty girls in addition to her other duties. These 
other duties have become so insistent this year that all her 
time has been absorbed by them. 

A great deal of time and thought is put into locating the 
girl coming out of the school for the first time, in an effort to 
bridge the gap between the institution and the greater freedom 
and temptation outside. To provide each girl with the best 
possible chance means the use of every available resource and 
the exercise of judgment, intuition and imagination. The fact 
that many of the girls are incapable of sustained effort, or are 
too much of a responsibility for their employers or for their 
families, make many changes necessary. Nevertheless, 87 girls 
during the year completed a stay of at least a year in a place of 
employment, and of all the girls in homes or employment on 
November 30, 1921, 46 had been in one place over a year. 

Three hundred sixty-five girls have been in housework posi- 
tions during the year. Three hundred eighty-seven homes 
have been used. There have been 197 new employment appli- 
cations for girls, of which 180 have been looked up and 120 
used. 

There have been 133 investigations of the homes of the girls 
newly committed to the school. The following is a summary 
showing from what conditions the latter came: — 

Of the 133 girls committed, 72 were living in their owm homes 
and 7 in foster homes; 40 were runaways from their homes; 72 
had had previous court records; 36 had been in other institu- 
tions; 36 came from homes where there were immoral in- 
fluences; 56 had both parents living. 

One hundred ninety-three homes have been reinvestigated, 
because girls were ready to be paroled from the school, or had 
been petitioned for by parents or relatives. This added knowl- 
edge of developments in the family of the girl is of real value, 
not only if the girl goes home, but in the understanding of the 
relations of the girl to her family. 

The problem of the girl at home is very different from that 
of the girl in a foster home, or one employed, for often it be- 
comes the problem of the whole family. The relations between 
the girl and her visitor are different, for the girl naturally turns 
to her own people for sympathy, if not for advice. Often, in 



Part L] DIVISION OF JUVENILE TRAINING. 81 

such cases, the visitor influences her girl through some receptive 
mother or sister. 

Sometimes a girl thrives only at home with her own people; 
sometimes she is unable to stand up under the greater freedom 
allowed her at home. On November 30, 1921, there were 103 
girls in their own homes, and of those paroled for the first time 
during the year, 46 went directly to their homes or to relatives. 

Thirty- two girls have attended public school, — 16 in high 
school, 12 in grammar school, 1 in normal school, 1 in an 
academy, and 2 in business college. No girl has been removed 
from a school because of misbehavior in school. There have 
been no cases of truancy. Eight of these girls have remained in 
one home through the entire year; 6 are still in their first 
foster home; 5 have been entirely self-supporting during the 
year; and 6 have attended school from their own homes. 

The public school teachers have been most kind and co- 
operative. The good behavior of the girls in the one high school 
which once refused to admit the industrial school girl has won 
for the girls this year a cordial welcome. 

The girls have shown remarkable progress, both in their 
studies and in the general formation of character. They have 
become normal, well-living, clean-minded girls, satisfied with 
the everyday pleasures and the everyday duties of life. 

Fifty-eight girls with babies, or who were pregnant, have 
been in our care during the year. Twenty-three of the 58 girls 
were pregnant when committed to the school. In many in- 
stances their commitment could have been avoided, principally 
because of their change of attitude after the birth of their 
children. This class of girls cannot be trained at the institution, 
and must be placed back in the community in about the same 
state of development as when committed. They are for the 
most part inefficient because of a lack of training, and present 
a difficult problem for the Department. 

Girls are returned to the school most reluctantly, and only 
when our resources in the community are temporarily exhausted, 
or when the girl has become a menace to society. The reasons 
for return for serious cause may be roughly grouped under ^Ye 
heads, — immorality, stealing, running away, medical treat- 
ment, and training. 



82 DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC WELFARE. [P. D. 17. 

At the beginning of the year there were 41 girls at the school 
who had been returned. Of this number, 9 had been pregnant 
when committed and had returned for training. There had been 
no mental examination in five instances. Twenty-eight out of 
the 36 examined were feeble-minded or psychopaths. Thirty- 
six of these girls have since be£n placed. 

Sixty-four girls have been returned to the school during the 
year, 8 for further training. Twenty-eight were taken out again 
before November 30, leaving 43 "returned girls" in the school. 
Of the 64 girls returned 47 were examined mentally. Thirty- 
six of the 47 were feeble-minded or psychopaths. Of the 43 in 
the Industrial School at the end of the year, 33 had been 
examined mentally and 23 were feeble-minded or psychopaths. 

There are a large number of girls who have maintained them- 
selves on a level of self-respect and efiiciency which is most 
hopeful. One hundred thirteen of the 365 girls employed at 
housework during the year have been entirely self-supporting 
throughout the year. Sixty-two girls, who have been em- 
ployed at housework from three months to a year, have been 
entirely self-supporting during that time. 

It is encouraging to note that $2,317.16 more was deposited 
in the savings bank by the girls in 1921 than in 1920. On 
November 30, 1921, there were 358 accounts of girls under 
twenty-one years, totaling $12,977.80. Thirty girls during the 
year had accounts ranging from $104.84 to $320.10. Five had 
over $200 earned and saved by themselves, and one had $450.86 
when she became twenty-one. This large sum included allot- 
ment money. 

These figures are significant of the effort to inculcate habits 
of thrift. On the other hand, great emphasis is placed on wise 
spending, and girls are allowed to choose their own clothes as 
soon as they show signs of good judgment. The handling of 
their own money is a great incentive to the more thoughtful 
girls. 

One of the most necessary services to be rendered to the 
girl on parole is the care of her health. Eyes, feet, throats and 
appendices are ever with us, clamoring for attention. During 
the year 540 visits have been made to the out-patient depart- 
ments of hospitals. There have been 65 ward patients and 43 



Parti.] DIVISION OF JUVENILE TRAINING. 83 

girls examined at the Psychopathic Hospital. Girls have con- 
sulted private physicians fifty-four times. 

These visits to hospitals are inevitably so numerous that they 
are a great tax on the visitors' time, even when our devoted 
helper, Miss Field, is with us. During her long absence this 
last year we had the assistance of Mrs. Gould, who volunteered 
on certain mornings for a number of weeks, and during the 
vacation period the services of an extra visitor were secured 
temporarily, but with the increased number of girls the de- 
niiands for hospital attention have necessarily increased, and 
the need for a regular worker becomes more insistent. 

The only measure of success we know is the conduct of the 
girls when they pass out of the care of the trustees. Seventy- 
seven girls attained their majority, and 24 received hx)norable 
discharge for their constantly good behavior on parole. 

Of the 101 who passed out of the trustees' care during the 
year, the conduct of 65 was good; of 6 was doubtful; of 4 was 
bad; and of 26 was unknown, because they were out of the 
State, runaways, or too recently out of an institution to deter- 
mine which way they would turn. 

A very clear need is the study of the personality — the body, 
the mind and the character — of all girls committed as de- 
linquent to the care of the State, that treatment may be really 
intelligent, and that its results may form the basis of future 
action by the State. 

With the constantly increasing efficiency of the technique of 
the Department, there has developed an unusually fine team 
spirit, so marked as to be worthy of comment. The constant 
demands of the girls upon the best one has to give are great 
mental and spiritual discipline to the w^orkers, and serve to 
keep alight their enthusiasm.

HOUSING AND TOWN PLANNING. 

Miriam I. Ross, Secretary. 
Town Planning Progkess. 

Town planning is one of the greatest issues in the United 
States to-day. It is no longer to be regarded as a fad, but is 
an important phase of municipal activity. It is an attempt to 
plan ahead, that the growth of the community may be orderly 
and may bring comfort and convenience to all citizens. The 
tendency of people to gather in small areas has brought with 
it real problems. Health and order and civic welfare will 
not come of their own accord. They must be planned for 
wisely, and the problem of achieving them grows as the com- 
munity grows. 

The civic problem of to-day is to provide for all citizens — 
not just a favored few — opportunity for nornial living con- 
ditions, with sufficient light, air, sanitation and room for each 
individual, with provision also for recreation, education and 
esthetic development. This is the ultimate aim of town plan- 
ning. The haphazard growth of cities has resulted in the neces- 
sity of replanning many areas, — a remedial method often 
attended by great opposition. This opposition must be over- 
come before much can be accomplished. Education is there- 
fore a necessary part of town planning work. 

Town planning as a scientific study did not begin until 
the latter half of the nineteenth century, when Paris, under the 
leadership of Baron Haussman, became the pioneer city. The 
movement soon began to spread. Germany, England and 
the United States became interested, and soon books were being 
written and actual progress was made in the town planning field. 
Now Japan, Brazil, Australia, Sweden, Holland, Italy, India 
and many other countries have their private organizations or 
public departments to study and improve civic conditions. 
Over thirty years ago the town planning movement in England 
was begun with the founding of Port Sunlight. The Garden 
City Association was started in 1900. 

The first national conference on city planning was held at 
Washington in 1909, when it was decided to hold annual con- 



Part I.] HOUSING AND TOWN PLANNING. 85 

ferences on city planning in which "all organizations contribut- 
ing to the developing of the science of city planning might have 
a part." ^ 

Since the beginning of the town planning movement in 
America, in 1893, over 200 cities have made a start in this work, 
and many have adopted comprehensive plans worked out under 
the direction of experts. Eighty-five cities and towns in the 
United States have taken up the study of zoning, and have 
zoning plans and ordinances accepted or in preparation. 

In Massachusetts during the last year encouraging progress 
has been made. The number of planning boards is greater and 
the activity of local boards has increased. At the beginning of 
the year there were 36 active boards. There are now 47, and 
it is reported as probable that 11 more will be appointed soon. 

On October 19 the annual conference of planning boards, 
called by the Governor on behalf of this Department and the 
Massachusetts Federation of Planning Boards, was held in 
Winchester. The conference was well attended and proved a 
great stimulus to activity.^ 

The Department has worked in co-operation with the Federa- 
tion of Planning Boards as much as possible, and has been 
called upon by various planning boards for advice and sugges- 
tions. Several cities and towns where town planning is being 
taken up as a new study have asked for information and aid 
in drawing up ordinances, methods of procedure in establishing 
new boards, and programs of activity for the new boards when 
established. The Department has not been in a position to 
seek opportunities for service. It has tried to meet problems 
as they came up and to send persons seeking information away 
satisfied. It should be doing an active educational work. 
When a planning board desires to convince its community of 
the value of its work it should receive help and encouragement 
from the State. We should have a field agent who could help 
interested groups to convince their fellow citizens of the need 
for town planning, — an agent who could be of expert assist- 
ance to boards who desire to make progress.

86 DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC WELFARE. [P. D. 17. 

Much has been done this year. Much more should be done 
in the future to make this Division function as it should. 

While an ordinance or by-law is not necessary to the estab- 
lishment of a planning board, many cities and towns favor 
this method of procedure, and in response to repeated requests 
for a model form of ordinance the Department is printing 
as Appendix B of its report on housing and town planning, 
published separately, a form for cities and another for towns. 
These may serve as a basis for local laws. 

The following table shows the present status of planning 
boards in Massachusetts cities and towns : —

Housing Expeeiment at Lowell. 
The housing experiment at Lowell remains in an uncompleted 
state. There seems to be little likelihood that the State wall 
in the immediate future continue the building planned by the 
Homestead Commission. Probably the best w^ay to get this 
project completed would be to turn it over to a private builder

Part LI THE FIVE INSTITUTIONS. 91 



THE FIVE INSTITUTIONS. 

The five institutions in the Department of PubHc Welfare 
are: the State Infirmary at Tewksbury; the Lyman School for 
Boys at Westborough; the Industrial School for Boys at 
Shirley; the State Industrial Schools for Girls at Lancaster; 
and the Massachusetts Hospital School at Canton. 

Under the supervision of the Department, the administration 
of the five institutions is arranged as follows : — 

The State Infirmary is controlled by the following Board of 
Trustees: Galen L. Stone, Brookline, chairman; Nellie E. 
Talbot, Brookline, secretary; Mrs. Mary E. Cogan, Stoneham; 
Francis W. Anthony, M.D., Haverhill; Dennis D. Sullivan, 
Middleborough; Walter F. Dearborn, Cambridge; G. Forrest 
Martin, M.D., Lowell. 

The three State training or industrial schools fall under the 
control of Trustees of Massachusetts Training Schools. The 
Board is as follows: James W. McDonald, Marlborough, 
chairman; Mary Josephine Bleakie, Brookline; Matthew Luce, 
Cohasset; Clarence J. McKenzie, Winthrop; Amy Ethel 
Taylor, Lexington; Charles M. Davenport, Boston; James D. 
Henderson, Newton; Ralph A. Stewart, Brookline; Eugene T. 
Connolly, Beverly; Robert J. Watson, executive secretary, 
41 Mt. Vernon Street, Boston. 

The Massachusetts Hospital School is controlled by the fol- 
lowing board of Trustees: Edward H. Bradford, M.D., Boston, 
chairman; Leonard W. Ross, Mattapan, secretary; Walter C. 
Baylies, Taunton; William F. Fitzgerald, Brookline; Alfred S. 
Pinkerton, Worcester. 

NUMBERS. 

The total number of cases under care in the five institutions 
during the year was 8,239, a number more by 926 than the 
corresponding total of 1920. Of the total number, 5,768 were 
males and 2,471 were females. Five thousand five hundred 
twenty-six were under care for hospital treatment; 2,713 were 
juvenile delinquents. Of the hospital cases, 519 were suffering 
from pulmonary tuberculosis, and an average of 724 were in-

sane. Added to the above were 468 indigent persons, having 
no legal settlement, cared for at the State Farm. For move- 
ment of population, see Table III. 



CAPACITY. 

The depletion of institution population through the abnormal 
demands for laborers was a marked feature of institution 
census in 1919 and 1920. The average daily population of the 
State Infirmary, where partially or totally disabled dependents 
are cared for, fell 160 below normal capacity in 1919, and 371 
below normal in 1920. 

During this year the industrial depression has caused an in- 
crease of 318 in the daily population, bringing it up to 54 below 
normal. 

The Hospital School is 22 below normal, while the three 
training schools all average a little above. The largest daily 
census shown in the accompanying table reveals the full extent 
of the pressure of these schools to house the greatly increased 
number of juvenile delinquents.

COST OF MAINTENANCE. 

The combined appropriations for the maintenance of the fiYe 
institutions in 1921 were $1,537,832.77, including $43,627.23 
available from receipts in 1920. In addition to these appro- 



Part I.] THE FIVE INSTITUTIONS. 93 

priations, the sum of $19,774.48 was brought forward from 
balances of the 1920 appropriations, giving $1,601,234.48, the 
amount available for maintenance in 1921. The total ex- 
penditures on the same account were $1,569,372.37. Of the 
sum expended, $597,943.73 was for salaries, wages and labor; 
all other expenses, $971,428.64. For the coming year the re- 
spective Boards of Trustees submit estimates for maintenance 
appropriations, as shown in Table I. Estimates for special 
purposes will be considered later in this report under each of 
the institutions separately. 

COMPARATIVE VIEW OF MOVEMENT OF POPULATION AND 
OF EXPENDITURES. 

The movement of population in the five institutions is shown 
in brief but comparative form in Table II. Inmates are classi- 
fied by sex, while the daily average attendance appears in a 
column adjoining the average number of officers and em- 
ployees. The average number of persons employed, shown in 
this table, is obtained from an exact analysis of the pay rolls, 
reducing all employment to a basis of days. Table III affords 
comparative view of expenditures at all the institutions, classi- 
fied as '^current" and "extraordinary." Tables II and III are 
drawn in accordance with the statistical form adopted by the 
National Conference of Social Work, May 15, 1906.

females. 

Total valuation of plant, real and personal, $2,054,924.68. 
Normal capacity of plant, 2,351. Value per unit of capacity, 
$874.06. 

Provides almshouse and hospital care of indigent persons not 
chargeable for support to any city or town. 

During the year 5,172 persons have been under care, — 3,382 
males and 1,790 females, — 1,032 more than in 1920, and 470 
more than in 1919. The largest daily census was 2,492, the 
smallest, 2,163, the daily average being 2,297. For the preced- 
ing year the corresponding figures were 2,154 and 1,839, with 
the daily average of 1,979. This year marks the largest average 
since 1916. 

Four thousand two hundred sixty-two cases, of which 2,920 
were males and 1,342 females, were treated in the general hos- 
pital wards. In this number were 519 cases of pulmonary 
tuberculosis, 12 of diphtheria, 4 of measles, 3 of erysipelas and 
one of scarlet fever. Of the 421 deaths, 385 in the general

hospital department and 36 in the department for the insane, 
102 were from tuberculosis. 

Of the 519 cases of pulmonary tuberculosis in the consump- 
tive ward, 425 cases were males and 94 females. Classification 
on admission was as follows: incipient cases, 3; moderately 
advanced, 141; first stage, 15; arrested, 3; far advanced, 180. 
The conditions of patients on discharge were as follows: 167 
relieved; 79 died; 30 not relieved; 12 arrested. 

Thirty-nine cases of other forms of tuberculosis were treated. 
Adding these to the 21 cases of tuberculosis among the insane, a 
grand total of 579 cases of tuberculosis have been treated, — 
132 more than the previous year. 

One hundred seventy-one surgical operations were performed. 

Of the 131 births at this institution during the year, 67 were 
males and 64 were females. Of this number there were 130 
living births, namely, 67 males and 63 females. Among the 
mothers of these children 95 were born in the United States, 6 
in Ireland, 9 in British Provinces and 21 in other countries. 
For an account of this Department's work with mother and 
baby cases at this institution, see page 30. 

Six hundred seventy-two children were attending the school 
during the year in 30 different classes. 

In the insane department of this institution there was a daily 
average during the year of 724 persons, — 210 males and 514 
females. There were 37 deaths. Of the 146 admitted 49 were 
inebriates. 

The drug cases have been treated by complete withdrawal of 
whatever drug has been taken and catharsis followed by tonic 
treatment for a varying length of time, according to the re- 
quirement of each case, from two to three weeks, after which 
the patient is required to do some sort of work. It then de- 
pends mostly upon the make-up of the patient himself whether 
he will continue the use of the drug or not. There have been 
no ill results, although there is a period of discomfort at first, 
varying from three to five days. Alcoholic cases are treated in 
the same way to a considerable extent. 

With an appropriation of S899,635.39, a total of $882,807.19 
was expended for the maintenance of this institution. Of the 
amount expended, $319,729.03 was for salaries, wages and labor;

all other expenses, $563,078.16. Weekly per capita cost of 
maintenance, computed on expenses less sales and refunds from 
maintenance, $7,353. Total receipts from all sources other 
than the State treasury, $66,427.19. Net cost of maintenance 
to the Commonwealth, $816,380. Ratio of daily average num- 
ber of persons employed to daily average number of inmates, 1 
to 5.5. For detailed analysis of receipts and expenditures, see 
pages 114 to 130. The trustees estimate that $956,335 will be 
necessary for maintenance in 1922. (See table, page 94.) 

For the coming year the trustees submit the following esti- 
mate, with a request for special appropriations covering the 
same: — 



1. General hospital extension .

Almshouse Department at the State Farm, Bridgewater. 

HoLLis M. Blackstone, Superintendent. 

Provides almshouse care for indigent persons not chargeable 
to any city or town. 

Under chapter 199, General Acts of 1919, this institution was 
transferred to the Bureau of Prisons, now the Department of 
Correction, August 27, 1919. The data following are for the 
fiscal year ending November 30, 1921 : — 

During the year 468 cases have been cared for. Largest 
daily census, 315; daily average, 243. 

Number of admissions during the year, 242. The total 
number of cases leaving the institution during the year, whether 
by death or discharge, was 116. The deaths numbered 37. 



102 DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC WELFARE. [P. D. 17. 

Lyman School for Boys, Westborough. 
Charles A. Keeler, Superintendent. 

Total valuation of plant, real and personal, $613,333.99. 
Normal capacity, 460. Value per unit of capacity, $1,333.33. 

Provides custodial care and industrial training for delinquent 
boys under fifteen years of age. Cottage plan. 

During the year 1,493 cases have been under care, represent- 
ing 992 separate individuals. This total number of cases is 233 
more than in 1920 and 106 less than in 1919. The number in 
the school at the beginning of the year was 454; admissions 
numbered 1,039. The number of boys returned to the school 
this year for cause is 458, an increase of 125 over 1920, due 
largely to the industrial conditions. Discharges, 1,028; re- 
mainder at the close of the year, 465. The daily average num- 
ber of inmates was 467.35, — 28 more than in 1920. This has 
tested our normal capacity and has necessitated an early parole 
in many cases which may also be a contributing cause for such 
a large number of boys being recalled to the school. At one 
time during the year there were 513 boys in residence. 

The list of causes of admission in the 1,039 cases received 
during the year was as follows: assault, 2; breaking and 
entering, 98; delinquent child, 84; larceny, 104; returned from 
funerals, 10; returned from visits to sick relatives, 8; returned 
from places of parole, 458; running away, 15; returned from 
hospitals, 51; returned from court, 1; vagrancy, 2; forgery, 1; 
truancy, 2; receiving stolen property, 1; custody of Division 
of Child Guardianship, 6; setting fires, 3; returned from visit 
home at Christmas, 10; stubbornness, 23; runaways captured, 
160. 

Three hundred thirty-eight of the foregoing cases were com- 
mitted by the courts. Of this number, 288 had been arrested 
before, and 100 had been inmates of other institutions. Forty- 
four, or 13 per cent, were of American parentage; 178, or 52 
per cent, were foreign born; and 44, or 13 per cent, were un- 
known. Twenty-four of the boys were foreign born, while 311 
were born in the United States. 

Of the new commitments this year, 34 boys were eleven 
years of age and 28 under eleven. These young boys are taken

care of in two cottages, one seven and the other three miles 
from the main school. They do not mingle with the older boys. 

This year the average period of stay of boys paroled for first 
time at Lyman School was decreased from 11.74 months to 
11.11 months. 

Of the 1,028 cases discharged or released during the year, 446 
were released on parole to parents and relatives; on parole to 
others than relatives, 165; boarded out, 141; runaways, 170; 
sent to hospitals, 56; turned over to police, 2; transferred to 
other institutions, 15; released to funerals, 10; released to 
visit sick relatives, 10; released to navy, 2; released home for 
Christmas, 10; died, 1. 

With an appropriation of $236,047.86, a total of $232,431.40 
was expended for the maintenance of this institution. Of the 
amount expended, $92,129.83 was for salaries, wages and labor; 
all other expenses, $140,301.57. Weekly per capita cost of 
maintenance, computed on expenses less sales and refunds from 
maintenance, $9,533. Total receipts from all sources other than 
the State treasury, $248. Net cost of maintenance to the Com- 
monwealth, $232,183.40. Ratio of daily average number of 
persons employed to daily average number of inmates, 1 to 4.4. 
The trustees estimate that $231,119 will be necessary for main- 
tenance in 1922. (See table, page 94.) For detailed analysis of 
receipts and expenditures, see pages 114 to 130. 

The boys spend one-half of each day in some educational 
work which will be of service to them when they leave the 
school. The carpentry class teaches sufficient knowledge of 
carpentry so that many have left the school to work with 
building and manufacturing firms. The printing class issues a 
school paper regularly. The shoe department manufactures all 
the shoes and slippers for the school and for the Industrial 
School for Boys. The painting class has repainted the interior 
of six cottages and has done other necessary work at the school. 

There is still great need for a large building at the school to 
be used for laundry, kitchen and storage. 

For the coming year the trustees submit the following estimate, 
with request for a special appropriation covering the same: — • 

For the construction of a fireproof general storehouse equipped 
with refrigeration, and for central kitchen and laundry . $104,500

Industrial School for Boys, Shirley. 
George P. Campbell, Superintendent. 

Total valuation of plant, real and personal, $508,909.74. 
Normal capacity of plant, 280. Value per unit of capacity, 
$1,817.53. 

Provides custodial care and industrial training for boys over 
fifteen and under twenty-one years of age. Only boys under 
eighteen may be admitted. 

Owing, perhaps, to the industrial depression, there has been 
a marked increase in the number of commitments and in the 
number of boys returned for failure on parole. 

During the year 699 cases have been cared for, representing 
658 separate individuals. This total number of cases is 68 more 
than in the preceding year. The number in the school at the 
beginning of the year was 232. Admissions numbered 467; 
discharges, 382; remainder at the close of the year, 317. The 
largest daily census was 318; the smallest, 232; daily average, 
288.23. 

The list of causes of admission for 352 commitments of the 
467 cases received during the year was as follows: assault, 3; 
assault and battery, 4; breaking and entering, 13; breaking 
and entering and larceny, 92; forgery, 1; idle and disorderly, 
6; larceny, 117; stubborn and disobedient, 56; unlawful use of 
automobile, 10; vagrancy, 8; miscellaneous, 9; receiving stolen 
property, 4; carrying revolver or other dangerous weapon, 7; 
drunkenness, 3; not determined, transfers, etc., 15; runaways, 4. 

Three hundred thirty-eight of the foregoing cases were com- 
mitted by the courts, and 14 were transferred from Lyman 
School. Of the boys thus committed, 274 had been in court 
before, and 111 had been inmates of other institutions. Forty- 
five, or 13.3 per cent, were foreign born; 306, or 86.3 per cent, 
were born in the United States, and 1 unknown. Ninety-four 
were of American parentage, 187 of foreign parentage, and 19 
were of unknown parentage. The average length of stay of 
boys in the school was nine and one-half months. The average 
population of 288.23 was more than the average of the pre- 
ceding year by 67.07. 



Part I.] INDUSTRIAL SCHOOL FOR BOYS. 105 

Most of these boys are well developed physically, and need 
much work to take care of their surplus energy. The offences 
for which many of them are committed are very serious, and 
requires a strenuous effort to keep the boys from developing 
into criminals. The boys do a great part of the work about the 
large farm, and during the past year succeeded in supplying the 
greater part of all the food used in the school. 

It has been possible during the past year to assign to an 
experienced man the sole task of guiding the boys through their 
course in the school, placing them after careful consideration 
of their desires and abilities in shop or school and lending a 
sympathetic and understanding ear to all their difficulties. 

Of the 382 boys discharged or released during the year, 261 
were paroled; returned paroles placed out, 85; granted leave 
of absence, 8; transferred to Lyman School for Boys, 3; trans- 
ferred to Massachusetts Reformatory, 5; transferred to other 
institutions, not penal, 9; returned to court, over or under age, 
3; absent without leave, 8. 

There has been a decided drop in the mentality of boys com- 
mitted, about 40 per cent being able to do only fifth-grade 
work or less in academic courses. The number of definitely 
feeble-minded boys, always a problem, has increased. Ap- 
parently many courts, confronted with the case of a feeble- 
minded boy who obviously is not fitted for the institution for 
feeble-minded, commit him to us as a last resort. Such lads 
cannot profit greatly by the training here and are a drawback 
to the life of the school. 

On December 1, 1921, about one-third of the population was 
composed of boys who had been trained at this or other institu- 
tions previous to their present admission. It is hoped that with 
better economic conditions the number of boys of this sophisti- 
cated type will be greatly reduced, thus giving a freer oppor- 
tunity for work with new material. 

Out of an appropriation of $150,700.87, a total of $149,880.93 
was expended for the maintenance of this 'institution. Of this 
amount expended, $57,764.48 was for salaries, wages and labor; 
all other expenses, $92,116.45. Weekly per capita cost of 
maintenance, computed on expenses less sales and refunds from 
maintenance, $9,934. Total receipts from all sources other

analysis of receipts and expendittu-es, see pages 114 to 130. 

There is pressing need for a new infirmary building. 

For the coming year the trustees submit the following esti- 
mate, with request for a special appropriation covering the 
same:

IxDusTEiAL School for Girls, LA^XASTER. 
Cathap.ixz M. Ca:mpbell. Superintendent. 

Total valuation of plant, real and personal, 8467,458.59. 
Normal capacity of plant, 299. Value per unit of capacity, 
$1,563.40. Founded in 1S54 as a private institution. Taken 
over by the State in 1856. 

Pro^-ides custodial care and industrial training for delinquent 
girls under seventeen years of age at time of commitment. 

During the year 521 girls have been under care. This total 
is 33 less than in 1920. The number in the school at the be- 
ginning of the year was 321; admissions during the year, 200; 
discharged, including all persons going out of the school, 236; 
remaining Xovember 30, 1921, 285. 

The largest daily census was 329; smallest, 276; daily 
average, 303.67. 

The Hst of causes of admission for 133 commitments of the 
200 cases received at the school during the year was as follows: 
adultery, 1; being a runaway, 10; delinquency, 25; fornication, 
11; idle and disorderly, 6; larceny, 11; lewdness, 15; stubborn- 
ness, 45; wa\'ward child, 1; leading an idle, vagrant and \'icious 
life, 5; night walking, 3. 

Ptecalled to the school, 126, — for a ^'isit to the school, 21; 
on account of illness, 6; from hospital, 22; for further training, 
7; for larceny, 7; for running away from the school, 8; for 
Tunning away from home, 3; from a visit home, 5; from court. 



Part L] INDUSTRIAL SCHOOL FOR GIRLS. 107 

3; for being immoral while a runaway, 11; for immoral con- 
duct, 20; because in danger of immoral conduct, 4; for running 
away from place, 5; because unsatisfactory in place, 4. 

One hundred seven individual girls were returned during the 
year. Of the 295 girls discharged or released during the year, 
64 were released on parole to parents and relatives; on parole 
to other families for wages, 142; on parole to other families to 
attend school, earning wages, 8; from a visit at the school, 21; 
for a visit, 5; to court, 3; ran away from Industrial School, 
9; transferred to hospitals, 41; transferred to schools for the 
feeble-minded, 1; transferred to hospital for the insane, 1. 
Two hundred sixty-three individual girls were released during 
the year. 

The average length of stay in the school of the girls who 
were paroled for the first time in 1921 was two years, one 
month, five days. The longer period of training as compared 
with that in the boys' schools enables the superintendent to 
know the inmates better; gives an opportunity for more 
efficient training; and increases the pupil's chances of making 
good on parole. 

Many of the girls are not normal mentally, and for that 
reason are not proper subjects for this school. It is a very 
difficult thing to transfer these girls elsewhere. 

The more backward girls live for the most part in a separate 
cottage a few miles from the main school, and are given training 
best suited to their particular needs. This separation within 
the institution must continue, pending the time when proper 
classification can be effected before commitment. 

With an appropriation of $162,811.07, a total of $160,537.33 
was expended for the maintenance of this institution. Of the 
amount expended, $58,378.63 was for salaries, wages and labor; 
all other expenses, $102,158.70. Weekly per capita cost of 
maintenance, computed on expenses less sales and refunds from 
maintenance, $10,114. Total receipts from all sources other 
than the State treasury, $377.38. Net cost of maintenance to 
the Commonwealth, $160,159.95. Ratio of daily average num- 
ber of persons employed to daily average number of inmates, 
1 to 4.3. The trustees estimate that $160,633.50 will be neces-

sary for maintenance in 1922. (See table, page 94.) For de- 
tailed analysis of receipts and expenditures, see pages 114 to 130. 
The request for special appropriations covering the following 
items is also requested: — 

1. For steam heating system for Mary Lamb, Fay, and Roger 

cottages $10,200 

2. For steam-heating system for Clara Barton cottage (with- 

out boiler); for Pines Cottage (with boiler transferred 
from Fisher Cottage); and for connecting the heating 
main from the central plant located near by with Fisher 
and Clara Barton cottages 14,180 



Massachusetts Hospital School, Canton. 
John E. Fish, M.D., Superintendent. 

Opened December 1, 1907. Total valuation of plant, real 
and personal, $491,738.16. Normal capacity of plant, 302. 
Value per unit of capacity, $1,628.27. 

Provides care and schooling for crippled and deformed chil- 
dren. Crippled and deformed children of the Commonwealth 
between ages of five and fifteen, and mentally competent to 
attend the public schools, are eligible for admission. 

There were 354 cases under care during the year. This total 
is 20 less than in 1920, and 14 more than in 1919. 

On December 1, 1920, there were 294 children, namely, 161 
boys and 133 girls, in the school. Sixty were admitted and 
71 discharged during the year. The maximum number at any 
one time was 303, the minimum, 206, and the daily average, 
279.62, — an increase of 5.18 over the preceding year. Two 
hundred eighty-three remained in residence at the close of the 
year. 

The training of the average cripple is necessarily protracted, 
and should commence as early as possible. Furthermore, the 
influences which surround a crippled child at home are not 
helpful to a feeling of independence, and the work of education 
should begin at a time when these harmful influences have done 
the least evil. The girls are taught cooking, sewing, general 
housework, laundering and similar domestic arts as a routine 



Part L] FINANCIAL SUPERVISION. 109 

course for all, while a few selected cases are assigned to office 
work, the telephone desk, typewriting, etc. Farming, garden- 
ing, the care of poultry, work in the dairy, an apprenticeship 
with the baker, engineer, carpenter, painter, storeman, tailor, 
cobbler, chauffeur and other necessary employees, afford educa- 
tional opportunities of value to many of the older boys. 

Sixty-one per cent of the discharged cases are able to main- 
tain creditable standing in other schools or are successful wage 
earners. Many graduates enter public high schools without con- 
ditions, and a few have obtained such a grasp of scholarship as 
to give promise of becoming men and women of broad culture. 
It is obvious that heredity and environment are as influential 
in the cripple as in children without physical handicap, and 
that the scholastic work of the school has been notably success- 
ful as shown by the record of its graduates. This success is 
largely due to the sympathetic prompting to perseverance given 
by the teachers when without encouragement children fighting 
against heavy odds would have given up disheartened. 

Out of an appropriation of $152,039.29, a total of $143,715.52 
was expended for the maintenance of this institution. Of the 
amount expended, $69,941.76 was for salaries, wages and labor; 
all other expenses, $73,773.76. Weekly per capita cost of 
maintenance, computed on expenses less sales and refunds from 
maintenance, $9,834. Total receipts from all sources other 
than the State treasury, $47,532.15. Net cost of maintenance 
to the Commonwealth, $96,183.37. Ratio of daily average 
number of persons employed to daily average number of in- 
mates, 1 to 3.3. The trustees estimate the sum of $174,250 for 
maintenance in 1922. (See table, page 94.) For detailed 
analysis of receipts and expenditures, see pages 114 to 130. 



FINANCIAL SUPIERVISION OF THE INSTITUTIONS. 

The Department in its supervision of the financial adminis- 
tration of the five institutions — the plant and its upkeep and 
maintenance — ■ inspects each institution through paid officers 
monthly. 

Monthly analysis is made of articles of food, coal, hay and 
grain purchased, and tabulated results sent to each institution. 



no DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC WELFARE. [P. D. 17. 

In addition, sundry tabulations covering the year's operations 
have been prepared. The Department has co-operated with 
the several institutions in bringing about the joint consideration' 
of purchasing supplies, resulting in regular conferences upon 
matters of common interest, especially functions of purchasing. 
The following tables are designed to show in detail the 
financial condition of each institution. A convenient summary 
of the State's property represented by each institution is fol- 
lowed by a comparison of all appropriations and the expendi- 
tures made therefrom. 

I. Inventory. 

Inventory of State property represented by the institution is 
shown in Table IV. This tabulation is in four parts. Parts I 
and II exhibit realty; Part III shows personalty; Part IV 
summarizes the whole. 

From Parts I and II it appears that on November 30, 
1921, the ^ve institutions returned $3,301,772.94 in real estate, 
$176,024.57 of this amount being land, and $3,125,748.37 repre- 
senting buildings. Chattels real and other items of betterment 
are not separately considered; hence, water, telephone, fire and 
sewerage systems are to be found in the miscellaneous columns 
under the heading of "buildings." 

Part III shows the uniform analysis of personal property 
adopted by the State Auditor, to the amount of $834,592.22. 
The total valuation, real and personal, as shown in Part IV is 
$4,136,365.16.

parison. The tabulation also shows such of the receipts as 
under the law are available for maintenance purposes in 1922. 
According to this table the total receipts from all sources were 
$1,796,363.85. Of this amount, $1,681,122.01 was received from 
the State treasury, and the remainder, $115,241.84, came in on 
account of the institution, through board of patients, sale of 
products or otherwise. Of this latter figure, $46,927.91 is avail- 
able for maintenance purposes in 1922.

116 DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC WELFARE. [P. D. 17. 

III. Expenditures. 

Table VI, divided into three parts, shows all expenditures of 
whatever nature on account of the several institutions. Part I 
deals with maintenance only. Part II exhibits outlays for 
special purposes, divided into four headings, namely, "land," 
"buildings," "furnishing and equipping" and "miscellaneous." 
Part III sumiliarizes Parts I and II, and adds thereto the 
amounts expended from trust funds held by the Treasurer of 
the Commonwealth. 

The table shows that $1,569,372.37 was spent for mainte- 
nance, exclusive of expenditures for special purposes mentioned 
in Part II, which amounted to $110,745.29. 

In addition to the expenditures as above indicated, two insti- 
tutions — Lyman School for Boys and the Industrial School for 
Girls — have private trust funds which are administered for the 
benefit of inmates, but independently of the State's investment. 
The custody of each is vested in the State Treasurer, whose duty 
it is to invest the same and to pay therefrom at the request of the 
trustees. Three of these trusts — the Lyman fund, the Lyman 
trust fund and the Lamb fund — apply to Lyman School for 
Boys, while the Fay, the Mary Lamb and the Rogers book fund 
pertain to the Industrial School for Girls. From these sources 
a total of $1,004.35 was expended during the year, of which 
$100 was from the Fay fund, $62.68 from the Mary Lamb fund, 
and $841.67 from the Lyman Trust fund. By adding to the 
amounts given ($1,004.35) for trust funds, as shown in Part 

III, we find a grand total of $1,681,122.01 expended on account 
of the five institutions. 

IV. Analysis of Maintenance and Net per Capita Cost. 
The uniform analysis of maintenance expenditures comprises 

twelve classes or divisions, namely, "salaries and wages;" "re- 
ligious instruction;" "travel, transportation and office ex- 
penses;" "food;" "clothing and materials;" "furnishings and 
household supplies;" "medical and general care;" "heat, light 
and power;" "farm;" "garage, stable and grounds;" "re- 
pairs, ordinary;" and "repairs and renewals." Table VII is 
correspondingly divided into thirteen parts, the last of which 



Parti.] FINANCIAL SUPERVISION. 117 

is a summary of the whole, and shows for each of the five insti- 
tutions the total cost of maintenance for each of the main 
headings in the analysis. It further shows all receipts from sales 
or refunds; the difference, which is the net cost to the institu- 
tion; and the average net weekly per capita cost to the institu- 
tion, with a column showing the corresponding per capita for 
the three-year period just ended.

V. COMPAKISON OF APPROPRIATIONS AND EXPENDITURES 

THEREFROM. 

Table VIII affords comparisons of appropriations for main- 
tenance with the respective amounts expended therefrom. Ap- 
propriations are classified as "receipts available for mainte- 
nance," "appropriations in addition to such receipts/' and 
"balance brought forward from 1920 appropriation." All 
receipts at the Hospital School, though turned, like the receipts 
of all the other institutions, into the State treasury, are by law 
applicable to maintenance in the succeeding year. Receipts 
at the remaining institutions are not so applied. By this com- 
parison the total maintenance expenditures were $31,862.11 
less than the amounts appropriated. This balance reverts into 
the treasury. 

Receipts of 1920 available for maintenance in 1921, $43,627.23. 
This sum was received on account of board of patients at the 
Massachusetts Hospital School.

VI. Appropriations for Special Purposes. 
The total of appropriations for special purposes during 1921 
as shown by Table IX was $189,500. In addition to this 
amount the several institutions began the year with a total of 
$94,834.55, unexpended balance on previous special appropria- 
tions. The grand total available for 1921 was, therefore, 
$284,334.55. The amount expended from this total was $110,- 
745.29, leaving an unexpended balance of $173,589.26, of which 
$173,479.46 will be available in 1922. The remainder of $109.80

VII. Net Cost to the Commonwealth. 
The net cost to the State of maintaining or conducting each 
institution is the difference between the total expenditures and 
the total receipts from all sources other than the State treasury. 
These total expenditures must cover all moneys spent for 
maintenance and special purposes, together with interest on 
outstanding bonds. These items are compared in Table X. 
For convenience, the daily average number of inmates and the 
net weekly per capita cost to the State are added. This tabu- 
lation shows a daily average number of inmates of 3,635.87, 
and expenditures for all purposes of $1,710,399.48. Total re- 
ceipts from institutions, i.e., sources other than the State 
treasury, amounted to $115,241.84. The net cost to the State 
for all ^ve institutions amounted to $1,595,157.64, making the 
net weekly per capita cost to the State, $8,413.

VIII. Analysis of Pay Roll. 
Table XI, divided into six parts, shows a comparative analy- 
sis of the pay roll for each of the five institutions. The first 
five parts divide service into five classes, namely, "general 
administration," "medical service,"*^ "ward service," "farm, 
stable and grounds" and "repairs." Part VI summarizes the 
whole. The table shows the daily average number employed 
in 1920 and 1921, with the same average for the three-year 
period ending November 30, 1920. The same treatment is given 
the average monthly compensation and the weekly per capita 
cost. The total average number employed was 687.214, while 
for the three-year period preceding 1921 it was 616.149, and 
619.358 in 1920. The total average monthly compensation 
paid was $356,048, as against $293,145 in the preceding three- 
year period, and $335,419 in 1920. Miscellaneous and inci- 
dental employment not entered upon the pay rolls of the insti- 
tutions does not appear in this tabulation. The number of 
inmates to one employee averages about the same as last year 
in most of the institutions.

138 DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC WELFARE. [P. D. 17. 



THE COUNTY TRAINING SCHOOLS. 

Under the provisions of General Laws, chapter 77, section 2, 
the five county training schools for truants and habitual school 
offenders are subject to the visitation of this Department, which 
is required to report thereon in its annual report. The schools 
are as follows : — 

Essex County Training School, Lawrence. 
Hampden County Training School, Springfield. 
Middlesex County Training School, North Chelmsford. 
Norfolk, Bristol and Plymouth Union Training School, Walpole. 
Worcester County Training School, Oakdale (West Boylston) . 

The accompanying table shows the number and movement 
of population in these institutions for the fiscal year ending 
December 31, 1921, and also the average weekly per capita cost 
of maintenance, subtracting all receipts from private sources. 

As will be seen from the table there were 578 children in the 
^ve schools during 1921. The year opened with 381. In the 
succeeding twelve months 197 were admitted and 224 were dis- 
charged, leaving 354 in residence at the close of the year. This 
figure is 27 less than the corresponding number for 1920. 

The average age of the children at the time of their admit- 
tance was thirteen years, two months and twenty-three days. 
Every child must be discharged, by requirement of the statute, 
upon reaching the age of sixteen.

140 DEPAETMENT OF PUBLIC WELFARE. [P. D. 17. 



SUPERVISION OF THE SETTLED POOR RELIEVED OR SUP- 
PORTED BY CITIES AND TOWNS. 

The City and Town Pook. 

The law provides that the Department of PubKc Welfare 
may visit and inspect all places where city or town poor are 
supported in families, and requires the Department to visit, 
at least once a year, not only all children who are maintained 
by the Commonwealth, but all minor children who are sup- 
ported at the expense of any city or town. Children illegally 
retained in city or town almshouses, — i.e., children over two 
years of age, or, if the mothers are inmates, over three years 
of age, and not defective in body or mind, who have been 
retained in an almshouse for more than two months — must 
be removed therefrom and placed at board at the expense of the 
city or town concerned. (General Laws, chapter 117, sections 
3, 36, 37 and 38; chapter 121, section 16.) 

The following data show numbers and location of the various 
classes of persons coming within the scope of this statute: — 

The Settled Adult Poor provided for in Families. 
Of the 219 adult poor persons reported by local authority as 
fully supported in families on January 1, 1921, 17 had died and 
3 had been removed before visits could be made. The remain- 
ing 199 — 79 men and 120 women — were all visited and re- 
ported on by the Department's agents. They were supported 
by 107 cities and towns, as follows: Abington, 1; Acton, 1; 
Acushnet, 1; Arlington, 3; Ashland, 1; Athol, 1; Attleboro, 
2; Belmont, 1; Berlin, 1; Blandford, 1; Bolton, 1; Boylston, 
1; Braintree, 4; Brewster, 4; Burlington, 1; Charlemont, 1;

jSeld, 1; Weymouth, 2; West Tisbury, 1; Whitman, 5; Wo-

thirty; 2 between thirty and forty; 16 between forty and 
fifty; 22 between fifty and sixty; 40 between sixty and seventy; 
70 between seventy and eighty; 45 between eighty and ninety; 
3 ninety or over. For their support they were paid in 3 cases 
less than $2 per week; in 10 cases from $2 to $3 per week; in 
30 cases from $3 to |4 per week; and in 156 cases — mostly of 
old and feeble persons — the rate varied from $4 to $22, 
according to the amount of care required. Of the whole num- 
ber 54 per cent were reported to be in fairly good or good 
physical condition, and 88 per cent in good mental condition. 
In all but one case, they were apparently receiving good care. 
There were 58 able to do light work, either in the house or 
about the premises. There were 2 supported in their own 
homes. In 93 cases, according to the reports, the overseers 
of the poor complied with the law requiring them to visit these 
persons at least once in every six months; in 75 cases they 
made one visit a year; and in the remaining 33 cases no evi- 
dence of visits was foimd. 

Dependent Minor Children with Settlement provided 
FOR IN Almshouses. 
Visits were made in the cases of 144 children — 54 boys and 
90 girls — reported as cared for by the following cities and 
towns in their almshouses: Belchertown, 2; Beverly, 1; Bos- 
ton, 71; Brockton, 1; Cambridge, 4; Easthampton, 3; Fall 
River, 2; Holyoke, 9; Lawrence, 3; Leominster, 1; Lowell, 2;

4; Somerset, 1; Springfield, 15; Warren, 1; Worcester, 8. In 
addition to this number 75 had been removed from the alms- 
house before the time of visitation. Of the number visited 67 
were so defective in mind or body as to render their retention 
in the almshouse desirable; 6 attended school, and one assisted 
in the almshouse. Three were visited twice, and 12 were 
removed after visit. 



Dependent Minor Children with Settlement provided 
FOR Outside of Almshouses. 
As shown by the Department's visitation of the 1,097 chil- 
dren reported by the local authorities as fully supported out- 
side the almshouses on January 1, 1921, and on July 1, 1921, 
37 had been removed before visits could be made. The re- 
maining 1,060 — 567 boys and 493 girls — were supported by 
89 cities and towns, as follows: Abington, 1; Adams, 2; Attle-

Of the whole number, 69 were cared for and treated in public 
and private hospitals and asylums. There were 761 who at- 
tended school, and 29 who did more or less work. Of the whole 
number, 982 were in good or fairly good physical condition, 
and 1,035 were in good or fairly good mental condition. The 
price of board varied from |1 to $6 per week. These children 
were found to be well cared for with a few exceptions, which 
have been brought to the attention of the local overseers. 

The Penalty incurred by Certain Cities and Towns for 
Failure to make their Pauper Returns during the 
Month of April, 1921. 

Sections 32 to 35 of chapter 117 of the General Laws reads 
as follows : — 

Section 32. Overseers shall keep full and accurate records, in a form 
prescribed by the department of public welfare, of paupers fully sup- 
ported, persons relieved and partially supported, and travelers and va- 
grants lodged at the expense of their towns, and of the amount paid for 
such support and relief. 

Section 33. They shall annually, in April, for the year ending on the 
last day of March, return to the department of public welfare the num- 
ber of such persons supported and relieved, the cost thereof, knd a record 
of those fully supported. 

Section 34. In the year nineteen hundred and twenty-five and in 
every tenth year thereafter the return of the overseers shall contain true 
and correct answers to such additional inquiries as the department may 
deem it advisable to make. 

Section 35. If the overseers refuse or neglect to comply with the 
requirements of the three preceding sections, their town shall forfeit one 
dollar for each day's neglect; and the amount of such forfeiture on being 
certified by the department to the state treasurer shall be deducted from 
any amount to which said town may be entitled in reimbursement for 
relief of state paupers as provided in sections twelve and eighteen of 
chapter one hundred and twenty-two; and if no such reimbursement shall 
be due to said town, the forfeiture shall be deducted from any money 
which may be due to it from the commonwealth. 

Under these laws the Department reported to the Treasurer 
of the Commonwealth the names of the cities and towns that 
failed to make their pauper. returns during the month of April, 
1921, together with the amount of penalty incurred in each

REPOET 



OF THE 



Depaktment of Puelic Welfaee 



Part II 



Chaeitable Ooepoeations 

The Department of Public Welfare endorses no private charitable 
organization or agency. This rule is absolute, regardless of the known 
standing of any such society. Inspection and the publication of the 
annual return in this volume do not mean approval; on the contrary, 
inspection may mean the discovery of conditions calling for condemnation. 
No agency is warranted, therefore, in using the fact of inspection in such 
manner as to lead the public to believe that the Department has approved 
or in any sense recommends its work. 



PRIVATE CHAEITABLE CORPOEATIONS. 



Government supervision of private charitable corporations is 
provided in three legislative enactments, the first of v^hich 
requires the Department of Public Welfare to investigate all 
petitions for charitable charters, while the second and third call 
for annual inspection and annual reporting. In the following 
pages of this part of the report the functions of the Depart- 
ment and the year's work under these several statutes are 
explained. This statement is followed by abstracts of the an- 
nual returns of the various charities in a form intended to serve 
as a handbook of all the incorporated charities of the Com- 
monwealth. 

Investigation of Charitable Organizations seeking Incorporation. 

General Laws, Chapter 180, Section 6. 

Before making and issuing a certificate for the incorporation of 
a charitable corporation the state secretary shall also forward the 
statement described in the preceding section to the department 
of public welfare, which shall immediately make an investigation 
as to the applicants for incorporation and as to the purposes 
thereof, and any other material facts relative thereto, and shall 
give them a public hearing, notice of which shall be published 
once a week for three successive weeks in some paper published 
in the county where the corporation is to have its principal office 
or rooms, and if said office or rooms are to be in Boston, in some 
Boston daily paper, the last publication to be at least three days 
before the day set for the hearing, and shall forthwith report to 
the state secretary all the facts ascertained by it. If it appears 
to him from said report or otherwise that the probable purpose 
of the formation of the proposed corporation is to cover any 
illegal business, or that the persons asking for incorporation are 
not suitable persons, from lack of financial ability or from any 
other cause, he shall refuse to issue his certificate. If he refuses, 
the applicants may appeal to the superior court, which shall hear 
the case and finally determine whether or not the certificate of 
incorporation shall be issued. 



iv DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC WELFARE. [P. D. 17. 

During the year ending November 30, 1921, 56 applications 
for charters have been referred by the Secretary of the Com- 
monwealth. In 5 cases the petitions were withdrawn from this 
Department before the hearing. Eight cases are still pending.

since the passage of the law (March 7, 1910, to November 30, 
1921), the Department has reported upon 639 applications for 
charters, 534 of which were granted and 75 refused; 4 were 
withdrawn and 26 had not been acted upon by the Secretary 
of the Commonwealth up to November 30, 1921. In 64 other 
cases the applications were withdrawn before the report was 
made. 

Inspection of Charitable Corporations. 

Chapter 121 of the General Laws requires the Department of 
Public Welfare to make annual inspection of charitable corpora- 
tions which consent to said inspection. The text of the law as 
included in section 7 of the said chapter is as follows: — 

General Laws, Chapter 121, Section 7. 

... It [Department of Public Welfare] shall upon the request 
or with the consent of a charitable corporation which, under sec- 
tion twelve of chapter one hundred and eighty, is required to 
make an annual report to said department, at least once a year, 
visit and inspect the institution or investigate the work of such 
corporation. . . . 



vi DEPAETMENT OF PUBLIC WELFARE. [P. D. 17. 

Two hundred sixty-one inspections have been made during 
the past year, involving numerous conferences with directors 
and many visits to institutions. 

There have been 461 inquiries in regard to particular agencies 
and general matters connected with the field of private charity. 

Number and Classification of Incorporated Charities in Massa- 
chusetts. 

Of the 917 charitable corporations which made returns to this 
Department during 1921, 107 are homes for the aged; 112 are 
child-helping agencies; 185 are hospitals or other institutions 
for aiding the sick; 160 are agencies giving family aid; and 
129 are organizations doing neighborhood and club work. The 
remaining 224 corporations form a miscellaneous group chiefly 
civic or eleemosynary in their nature. 

An analysis of the returns made in 1921 shows the total 
capital, real and personal, of all these charities to be $141,485,- 
726.69. Incumbrances on real estate came to but $6,607,801.76. 
The total receipts for the year were $33,807,933.83, of which 
$11,345,411.51 came from beneficiaries and $4,661,864.82 from 
investments. The total outgo for all purposes for the year was 
$33,079,681.39. These agencies reported 14,343 paid employees. 
Instances of aid, though of little value as a total for statistical 
purposes, indicate that this group of charities during the year 
in question rendered some sort of charitable assistance to about 
1,750,000 separate individuals. 

Annual Reports of Charitable Corporations. 

The law provides that every charitable corporation must 
make to this Department an annual report on or before the 
first day of November in each year, and further provides that 
if any corporation fails for two successive years to make the 
report, the Supreme Court may decree its dissolution. The 
text of the law is as follows : — 

General Laws, Chapter 180, Section 12. 

A charitable corporation whose personal property is exempt 
from taxation shall annually, on or before November first, make 
to the department of public welfare a written report for its last 
financial year, showing its property, its receipts and expenditures, 



PartIL] CHARITABLE CORPORATIONS. vii 

the whole number and the average number of its beneficiaries 
and such other information as the department requires. If any 
corporation subject to this section fails for two successive years 
to file said report, the supreme judicial court, upon application 
by the department, after notice and hearing, may decree a disso- 
lution of the corporation. 

Abstracts of reports of corporations for the last financial 
year available are given on the following pages. The reports 
are arranged by towns, in alphabetical order under each town. 

Reports from 221 corporations which do not fall strictly 
within the scope of the Department's publication are on file, 
but are not here printed. Their names will be found in the 
alphabetical list of reporting corporations.
